Rockfax Description
A powerful start, tenuous mid section, and difficult finish up the wide crack give this route bags of character. Low in the grade. © Rockfax

A cold and windy day for August which made it all a bit miserable. Had a good sequence but not the energy left to execute it.

working session, most moves worked out. Footwork for the fingery crux to work out next time. Great varied route, packs lots of variety into a short distance

Got it on 3rd redpoint today, very sustained for what a relatively short route with only 5 bolts.

Lead to 4th bolt on Wednesday and ran out of steam, today it seemed no problem as moves were wired.

Heart breakingly close on 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th RP (fell going into the crack). Had to really dig deep with sore skin and wasted arms to get this one and it was all the more satisfying for it.

Massive progress, had 3 redpoints and fell off getting into the top crack one move from victory!

Luke Owens 01/Aug/13 Lead dog

New beta from Ally got me to a new high point by the 3rd bolt and have a new sequence for the crux. Bridged out left foot! It's on!

Ally Smith 01/Aug/13 Lead RP

2nd go after a random post crux foot slip on the flash go

Luke Owens 03/Jul/13 Lead dog

4th Session, powered out by the third bolt. Finding the moves in isolation easier.

New beta, did some bigger links. It's on!

Had 2 Red Points tonight. Pumped off both times entering the top crack. Heartbroken

2nd session, not so good!

Luke Owens 04/Jun/13 TR dog

Just about managed all the moves, managed a small link from the jug to the chains. Not my style at all, so psyched to stick at it! Felt miles harder than Barrance for me! Great route.

2nd go. Sooo nearly O/S. Dropped it going to the jug at the bottom of the crack with a heinous sequence (6b slap). Found a crimp out right making it 5c.

Nice climbing, did all of the moves.

Tried onsight, got up to touching the big flake but couldn't really make the powerful pull up so bolt to bolted it and then worked a few sequences and then led it first red point. Nice to do the route quickly, probably only 7b. Great route.
