βeta: If nature had provided one extra good pocket, Orion would be an entertaining F7a... How thoughtless. Perhaps a V-grade would be more appropriate?

Dandan 22 Sep, 2018 Lead dog Had a quick flash go as the draws were in, no joy but it will go next time around. Really good route, pockets are big enough that the polish isn't too much of an issue.

Emil Heydari-Waite 29 Mar, 2018 Lead RP Yes!! First 7c+! 2nd RP today, all felt super dialled and made the easier top all that much more enjoyable. Did crux crossing into two finger stack and going to high edge before the clip. Get in!

GrahamGiles 27 Apr, 2017 Lead RP 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...

joe1joe1joe2 25 Sep, 2016 Lead RP 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.

Ed Booth 15 Oct, 2014 Lead dog 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!

La benya 27 Oct, 2011 Lead RP 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.

mux ?Oct, 2010 Lead dog 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.
