Really cool climbing, got it second try today after and go up and a quick red point attempt a few weeks back. Powerful bottom section followed by tenuous top section

Nice little work in progress. Lots of balancy, crimpy moves with little for the feet. Did not finish. Cant wait to give it another go

Came back after a few months off due to intense frustration, finally sent it first red point today after multiple sessions. Thanks to mark McGowan for the belays and encouragement a couple of months back and cheers for the belay and encouragement today James. My hardest route to date by a long way.

Not even close. We all managed to get just above first bolt. Fun to try something impossible

Very good.. 2 go's.. Halfway onsight, almost sorted 2nd go. Top needs work.

At last, not only was today a welcome bit of outdoor climbing after a work related hiatus but it was also the end of multi-year efforts on this. Clips in then a failed go due to cold fingers, done 5 minutes later. Superb! No real feel for grade after numerous attempts but 7c seems fair given how long it took and the fact that brief gos on FM today felt 'easy'.

Well hard, and miles out of my depth. Fun moves in the lower section though.

Steady moves but easy to get one wrong! Not really climbed on slate before so was quite pleased this felt ok, too cold to attempt a redpoint unfortunately.

Bloody ell! Can't get any closer without doing it - old boots kind of rolled off last foothold :( Next time and not in months...

4 gos, last of which was v close: feet wrong on last move. Hard to be annoyed when it's so good.

Progress vs last year but crimp strength gave up towards top and then rain so no chance to sort last moves. Bit blown away by the quality of this, amazing slate!
