Thought that I was on Portland heights! No wonder it felt hard, but actually felt pretty good. Moved right to a small side pull rather than going for the chalked rails before the big move to the jug - short person beta.

1st RP My second 7b, six days after my first! A lot easier than my previous one. Great route however there is currently seagulls nesting below and just to the right of Portland heights. I have an amusing video of them attacking my friend whilst redpointing this route, so beware!

ArrMcC 01/May/16 TR dog

Awesome route. Got all the moves quickly and linked it from the crux section to the top. Will be on redpoint next session!

Almost flashed this. Fell off the big move from the rail to the jug. A dyno for me, tried it a few times but couldn't get it. Did it from there to the top.

Did all the moves first go with rests, lacking endurance.

1 go. Feels doable but not as good as Cybernetic Orchard.

Bit of a stamina fest, but really great climbing in a good position. Psyched to RP this in the future.

Really keen to come back for this! Another for the Portland Project Library. Felt sustained but never too desperate, more of a stamina challenge.

Ian Bell 19/May/12 Lead dnf

didn't read the guide properly and thought it was portland heights. none of the moves felt too bad but sustained and ran out of energy. do-able.

Great! sustained steep climbing with a couple of tricky sections thrown in for good measure.

mlg678 29/Oct/11 Lead RP

My first 7b...Whoop great route. Get up and over the first bolt, then its sustained till the top with 2 ways to do the crux in the middle. either a dyno or some super thin climbing . Maybe a easy one but cant really say as its my first. Awesome!

Attempting to climb Portland Heights - confused when I found it harder than expected! Great climb - quite technical sections...definitely go back to do clean myself ; )
