Rockfax Description
The centre of the red wall with a tricky bulge (and clip) to start then the easier flake to a final depressingly desperate move. © Rockfax

Rockfax has done this a bit of a disservice in its description. Nice climbing at top and crux not really that desperate just steady. Hard pull past 3rd clip

Found the crux low down really tough, too much of a reach for me !

Hard at 7a, although I could reach through the bottom move.

Hard start with poor bolting making it worse. 2nd bolt could be higher. Redpoint to 3rd bolt then on sight the rest. Should be 7a+ for the start alone. Not a great climb really. Middle section is lovely 6b :)

Glad to get this 2nd RP today. Nails for 7a. Really cruxy past 3rd bolt (2nd should be higher) and again at top. Admittedly easy in the middle with a fab rest but still much harder than many a 7a I've done in the Costa Blanca. 7a+ easily.

Couldn't do starting bulge even with top rope - need to grow taller or get a lot stronger to be able to do short person's method...

tricky bulge isn't to bad the depressingly desperate ending how-ever! slapping like mad up there 3*

First 7a, well chuffed. Tech sequence which took a bit of figuring out. Amazing quality.

Hard start. The top is OK really but sharp holds

That dreaded three letter acronym: DNF. Shut down at this clip so down-climbed and stripped.

Took a few falls at the top crux move before figuring it out. Nice line.

Not a great route. Dodgy rock at the base with nasty third clip and painful holds above. Desperate crux at the top. MILES harder than Sin Tarjeta!!

rubben 28/Mar/11 Lead

Put the clips up...then fell off literally the jug at the top...twice! D'oh!!! Skin was my excuse...last climb before rest day and dead...great climb though, deserves 2 stars!!!

went left at top crux-on route but no chalk on so felt a little naughty (still really hard though)
