Rockfax Description
A classic hard route saw many flash attempts back when it was 8a. The crux is a 4-move boulder problem on the steep middle section. © Rockfax

surprised how ok the moves felt first go, but then took about 8 goes to actually link it

Left draws up and came back to get it easy on the 2nd day. Ace climbing all the way through and then rewarded by nice juggy finish. easy for the grade, can't understand why this was 8a...

Goes from feeling very hard to very doable very quickly. Did cross over two finger stack on crux.

Struggling to unwind the crossover, feel like my feet aren't quite right. One bolt to bolt run today, many more to follow...

Used the cross through method. Took me around 15 attempts over 5 days. First route I've ever redpointed or spent any sort of time on. Learnt a lot! Not sure if I like redpointing.

Couple of goes to get the body position right for unwinding the cross through; then chap took his draws out and didn't get back on it

Good onsight burn but used shit finger jam method. Lowered down, pulled and tied straight back in and surprise surprise didnt get up it. Third time, tore flapper using the jam, then after finding out a much better way, had 15 mins and was too powered out to finish it. Bad tactics!

Last try of the last day, 20 mins before having to leave for the ferry! Get in! Used a different (easier) sequence than the norm, missing the cross over. There is no hard clip if extended slightly.

linked all the moves but couldnt make the clip at the crux. The bolt below was loose, I tightened by hand but didnt have the balls to miss out the crux clip and rely on that one if I popped. Shauna flashed it moments later.
