Rockfax Description
A good climb which has been re-bolted with a direct start. The original start is up Coming Up for Air at no change in grade. It would be 7c if it wasn't for the no-hands rest. © Rockfax

Almost onsighted putting the draws in. Fell from last hard move before pulling back on abd finishing. Bit of an odd route. And some ratty crimps. Not sure i'd rush back for the redpoint.

forced to get on this after there was a team on moat people. suprised myself by leading and working out most of it. need to try the bit after the 2nd rest but think it will go reasonably quickly

Great climbing although the no hands did feel kinda cheeky. Onsighted into the top crux- damn it was humid. 2nd go wasn't much better. Worth going back for.

Went down easier in the cooler temps but still feels tricky at 7b+. Great sustained, techy climbing. Going off for the no hands rest feels a bit cheeky but if everyone else does it then so am I!

Had 3 goes fell a bit higher on each go but all in the top crux! Think if it hadn't been so hot I'd have done it. This thing feels hard for 7b+! Great climbing though!

1st redpoint today, had 2 working goes a couple of years ago and put the clips in/worked out moves on first go this time.

Much harder than Moat People. Tenuous crux using slopey crimps - felt desperate despite a hands-off rest beforehand.

On first go up I tried to go left and then back right to the last bolt and ended up coming down. Wasn't sure if going into Coming up for air was legit. Tony seemed to think that was the way so I had a go. Just about managed the moves. Had a redpoint but blew it. Got from the floor to the start of this both times up though which in itself felt tricky.

1st RP. Fell off right at the top, misreading the sequence. A great route and a good fight, definitely worth 2 stars. Harder than Moat People.

Tried the top a few times but in hot weather and it felt impossible. In cooler weather it was a breeze. Really nice climbing. As others have mentioned the mid-height rest keeps the grade at 7b+.

birthday redpoint :) shame about the no hands rest but still a great route - touch harder than moat people - managed to do it between the rain showers

Top crux is ok if the conditions are ok. Felt 7b+ tbh.
