Rockfax Description
A link-up that takes in the crux moves of three lines. Start just right of the large block as for Prisoner of Conscience.
Climb the lower wall moving right to the crux of Bullworker and finally move right to finish as for El Chocco. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A link up of the start (crux) of Prisoner of Conscience, the middle (crux) of Bullworker, and finish (crux) of El Chocco make for a sustained route!

Finishing up the rest of Bullworker instead of moving right to the finish of El Chocco makes a good f7c+ link-up. (FA. Dave Pickford/Ally Smith, 2007)

Yyfy! Finally, after trying it 1 day a year on and off for the last 6 years i made it up this superb and sustained route. I used to think it might be 8a+ but today I got shown some bombproof beta for top crux and it all came together :-D

Soooo psyched! Harder than any other 8a I've done. Skipping the ice climbing season has definitely payed off.

Psyched to get up this. 2nd "proper" redpoint but I had played on it quite a few times over the years so the send felt like a long time coming. Key for me was some beta which allowed me to get the top pocket with my left, making the final El Chocco crux a bit easier.

Found some good beta for the top. Thought it was going to go but arrived at the jug after the Bullworker crux bolloxed out my mind and barely able to hang onto it let alone recover...

OK I guess. Done the other sections before in other routes. Hard pull on a crimp was crux. A route into a route into a route....

Tough moves all the way up. Right pain in the arse to strip, I dont think I will be coming back to make it my first 8a.

2nd go, dropped the mantle of El Chocco putting the draws in. Such a good finish to a route.

1st RP, Long move to get into the top of 'El Chocco'. Awesome link up.

finally redpointed in brilliant conditions. Freezing cold everywhere apart from right under the crag at brean.

Very good route. Good 7c+ if you do the normal bullworker finish. A different proposition altogether to finish up el chocco! puts it at proper proper 8a
