Rockfax Description
One of the best sport routes at Dinbren. A powerful start, fingery middle, and easier but energy sapping finish make for a fantastic outing. © Rockfax

Finally. Put up a good fight this one. Great moves, feels a solid 7c with loss of the big low undercut.

Bigger of the lower undercuts came off today (whole flake). Looks like it had been cemented in the past, whole flake at bottom if anyone wants to glue back. Still climbable but if it wasn't 7c already it is now!

All comes down to one powerful move. Only managed it once or twice before I got a flapper from trying too many times

What an awesome route, glad to get the flash on this :). Felt 7a+ though

Cold day, hot aches every time I went up. Savage start on undercuts Managed to link from above second bolt (big side pull) all the way to the top in one on second go. 3 goes today

Hard. Took a few sessions for me but very good once unlocked

Been on this a few times recently so keen for RP. After warm up we got to the bottom and first under-clings were wet! Attempted to miss but it adds a grade, used stuffed tea towel to dry it. 1st RP attempt got past crux to crimp, but it was raining and a little moist so failed. 2nd RP attempt I got it, very happy.

Felt quite hard at 7b+, very unforgiving if you haven't got the beta totally ironed out. First day at Dinbren and impressions are very good indeed! Can't wait to come back for a rematch

Top roped twice

davidliu 30/May/12 Lead dog

Put the clips up, 1 TR and 1 RP, felt brutal

jgustafsson 28/Aug/11 Lead dog

Put up draws and tried the moves, but only had time for one proper redpoint. Powered out just before clipping jug of fourth bolt, so not a million miles away. Great route; so sustained.

31/07/11 Had lots of tight but made it all the way up with many rests, all holds were chalked so was easy to work 90% of the moves. (3 goes) 02/08/11 Tried again, first go I just tried each move, 2nd go had just one rest on the technical move half way. 05/08/11 Forgot harness so made one out of tapes. Did rubbish, think lack of harness knocked my confidence as I planned to go for the RP today.

Rested over night and got the bolts in in the morning and fine tuned my sequence and got it first red point. Ace, finally got the classic done and fairly quickly. 7C and 8a next!

Ed Booth 04/Apr/09 Lead dnf

Tried after I Punched Judy First. Failed miserably on onsight so quickly bolt to bolted it and then had 3 redpoint burns but was too tired to do it.

I'm so chuffed to get this! What a climb. Finding a new footwork sequence for the middle was the key.
