18m. 'One of THE best F7c's in North Wales'. The route tackles the drastically undercut axe-edge arete left of The Hunt. Boulder out the steepness to the 4th draw where a move rght gains the headwall. Follow the arete to the 6th bolt where a diagonal line of edges and slots lead to the lower-off.

DDDD 18 Jun Lead dog Last had a go 2 years ago when I didn't have a clue. Did all the moves today with some heel sneekiness, good bouldering to the 4th then a nice route to the top. Great route.

chris_woodsy 25 Aug, 2018 Lead RP What a route. This took a bit of effort - a few evening visits to sort the moves out. I've literally never been so close to binning it... realised my eyes were closed at one point I was squeezing so hard... multiple hand slips and foot pops made the eventual accent even more unlikely. This has to be hard for the grade?! Anyway, total class, well worth the effort.

jonleighton 8 Oct, 2016 Lead RP Had to work really hard for this, but that made eventual victory all the sweeter. Had a session a few months back but by the time I managed to work out a decent sequence I was totally powered out. Went back today and managed to refresh my beta, then had a good burn, got through the crux, only to have a sidepull break off between the 3rd and 4th bolts. Had another go but didn't climb so well and ended up power-screaming and cutting loose on loads of moves. Nonetheless I got through the crux again and found myself standing above the 4th bolt, only to have my foothold break! Had one more go after a rest, not expecting very much since I'm really quite tired at this point, and finally manage to get to the top with decent execution and no more hold breakage, woop! Definitely feels a bit harder than a lot of other 7cs for me, but I think that may just be a style thing. It would suit burly boulderer types.

shed_hed 29 Apr, 2014 Lead dog Great climbing but such big powerful moves at the bottom don't suit me; will need a lot of work. The top section eases but still isn't straight forward.
