Flashy on-sight. Seen photos of the crux using the undercut, and got reminded of how to do the start

Better sequence (not as far left) it'll take a good bit of work to get a tick.

Second go, PB for me! Nice route, enjoyable technical sequence. Soft at grade.

Edward Kwong 06/Aug/17 Lead RP

Great moves. Nearly got the flash, refined it a bit and sent without too much fuss 2nd go.

Matti Puckridge 06/Aug/17 Lead RP

Stellar route. Great moves on good edges.

finally got it on the second go today. Had to climb past the first small roof to clip from above to be able to finish it up without pumping out. Just great

2 attempts on but got shut down by the weather

A lovely route, good flowing moves, decent Crux, and a droppable finish.

Lots of work on top rope and one lead attempt falling at the crux. Hopefully it will go on fresh arms

Some great moves on this - didn't quite go today, but lead in two parts.

Fantastic route! Mid-route crux flows really nicely once you got the beta. Very high clips so need a steady head for that. Went surprisingly quickly (over the weekend basically). Means its' a soft 7c?

A nice line, very technical and crimpy. 1st go after I got the draws in.

Did all the moves with lots of rests, (think moves of ledge on left are off route, personally)

Pulled through a few sections, still felt do-able though! I think it'll be a nice little project for the winter

First RP. Fell off 1 move from the jug on the on-sight when I decided to start climbing down & right for a (non-existent rest) rather than up to a massive jug :(

First redpoint today after putting the clips in. Very enjoyable climb with some really good moves and went very easily, which was nice. Then Rubben did it and then RockSteady did it. So a good time was had by all!

rubben 11/Sep/16 Lead RP

2nd Go - fluffed the onsight and pumped out a little. Didn't like it first time round, but actually climbs really well from top to bottom. Good climb!

Puzzled by the crux. Took ages to work out, by the time I had all sussed out I was goosed. Next time.

Powered by pea soup. + 15 January with AlexD and 16 January with Ellis. Much easier than Hall of Mirrors for me.

Fantastic route!! Deserving of more than 1 star. Don't be put off by the awkward start, really enjoyable moves through the crux.

got the right moves, after a few goes failing to use Ben's silly hard beta. Was a wuss. Should go next time. The rain probably didn't help, though it dampened my psyche more than the rock.

Some good climbing in the upper reaches, worthy of two portland stars.

Toby Dunn 21/Jan/12 Lead RP

Much better than it looks from the floor, suffers a little from a stretch of the usual easy Portland choss, but the crux to the top is all on good rock, and with some exciting moves between some surprisingly small holds!
