Rockfax Description
A good climb. Boulder out the initial wall to a good hold, then move up and tackle the steep bulge above using shallow pockets, dimples and some slopy holds. No sneaking off-route for a rest at this grade. © Rockfax

climbs nicely, one of dinbren's best

A re-acquaintance session, loads of little bits to remember. Feels way more solid than last season.

Adam Booth 03/Oct/15 Lead dog

Very close. New beta for top - three fingers stacked in left-hand pocket, front two fingers on right-hand pocket/crimp. Next time...

Direct without sneaking off right for a rest, didn't feel so much easier than El Rincon to me. Great route, glad I don't have to do that rockover again!

had a couple of failed RP's at top, but then did it once my fingers were warmed up. No going off right. 8a like this I think, and really good.

One of the only bits of dry rock available so we tried it. Worked bottom sequence out to pinch then it obviously gets hard

Great route. Powerful, technical and very balancy to finish.

Adam Booth 16/Jul/14 TR dog

Did all the moves this time but the top feels desperate and so finger intensive!

davidliu 16/Jul/14 TR dog

Very, very fingery...or have i been away to long Dinbren?

Adam Booth 13/Jul/14 TR dog

Account open. Need to learn the bottom bit really well to have any chance on the dimples at the top!

Nice route - feels different to other Dinbren 8's. I've lead it clean a couple of times now - Initially using the crack half way up, then without it - slightly harder without crack and more height dependant - either way, brilliant slopey finish through the bulge is what it's all about!

crux hold wet today, still having difficulty working out moves through bulge. feels harder than 7c+ or maybe im just using wrong beta?

ksjs 17/Feb/08 TR dnf

worked top bulge.

ksjs 25/Jan/08 TR dnf

linked from ground to crux cleanly. brief moves on crux section due to failing light. encouraging progress
