Rockfax Description
Another painful boulder problem start leads to the break and a jug, then make one more hard pull leftwards to gain the flake-line. The upper wall is comparatively easy. Missing the start by balancing up the old tree was Perfidious Primate, E4 6b. © Rockfax

Skinned my knuckles. Move from jug sorted, but start still feels hard.

My first 8a. Finally did it today after making many Friday afternoon trips to the Tor. I kept falling off the last hard move and injured a finger on a previous attempt but it went first try today.

very painfull start to the point where the three finger pocket took off the skin on my middle finger. Hard pulling to the jug then you are faced with the hardest move on the route reaching to a side pull then a crank and a through allows you to reach a goodish crimp, Then the route is done had about 5 or 6 redpoints as somtimes wouldnt do the start and then would fail on the through out to left hand crimp but manged to do it in a day. top wall just feels like an good e4 woooop 8a in a day :)
