Rockfax Description
The broad rib is climbed on good but slick pockets until you thought it in the bag, and then there is a horrible precarious move to easy ground. © Rockfax

Watched someone on it before my attempt to give the onsight away. Huge holds + steep but simple to read and plenty of opportunity to shake out. Easier for me than Starman and not quite as good

This turned into a bit of an epic for me! Not sure why though, it's biggish moves on big holds! It is super polished which made me mega pumped! The crux move is really nice, I found the steeper loves below it harder! Got it third go but only just! Good enough route, but so polished!

Mat Welsh 20/Nov/17 Lead O/S

Good route for a warm-up but hardly 'Top 50' quality - basic steep climbing with a good crux(which is not a "horrible precarious move" as per Rockfax suggests)

Didn't get up clean. Fell from several times on the last few moves. Gutted! Very pumpy route.

Steep with Big holds, just not strong enough.

Big smooth holds. Slightly harder than Starman but only because the steep bit is steeper or maybe cos I was getting tired

end of session - thought too caned to lead so went to strip the draws. Actually felt OK, and less pumpy than spiderman

As good as it looks, just had to claw through the last move, but that just made it the more fun.

Severely hungover from night in Alicante... Worst I have ever climbed...

Fantastic steep pocket pulling that flows really well and has a nice crux to twist up through. Just didn't have the energy left afer several hard days to clean it, fell off crux. Will hopefully be back another time!

After 3 valiant dogged attempts battling with pump I was forced to admit defeat, but ended up coming back after a few days thinking id just put the draws up then work it and ended up sending it on the 1st attempt ^_^ This is my best route iv ever climbed, and also my 3rd outdoor 7a! A magnificent route, although a little polished it doesnt really matter, highly recommended!

aaahhhhh! Gutted I missed the onsight! Very onsightable. A little on the easier side of 7a. Amazing route, not too sharp. Polish, but it doesnt matter.
