Rockfax Description
A Dinbren testpiece. Pull powerfully up to gain the undercut, then step awkwardly right to more undercuts and a good finger-jug. Pull straight up with a long move to access the hanging groove, which is followed delicately rightwards. © Rockfax

Knackered after the day before, but good to get the moves sussed. One go at the traverse on TR whilst lowering off fire , one go to try the rest of the moves then one crack at it from the floor.

Quality route. My head wasn't really into sport though and I really had to give myself a talking-to to get up it!

Had no probes with the powerful lower half but took a while to sort a controlled way of doing the long move higher up. Brilliant route.

cloud inversion made for an unseasonally hot day. too hot to pull off the tiny crimp at the crux so waited till the sun was going down. Cruised the crux but fell off on the undercut traverse; fortunatelly got it on next go. brilliant climb

2 goes to sort the beta out, then decided to strip it as ran out of skin and accidentally pulled it off. amazing route despite the number of undercuts, psyched to get back for a lead

Maybe the better of the two, almost fluffed the top. Send it after having a look at the moves coming down from Fire. Great route again. Solid at 7b I'd say, this would get 7b+ down south

Fell off after latching the big move up top first redpoint. Then couldn't get through the nails start moves and just felt powered out.

pleasing after yesterdays failure. as good as Walking with... but not as hard.

start felt hard with damp undercuts

not going to beat myself up - the starting undercuts were just too wet today. there appear to be 2 starts to this route, one on the right and one on the left. after tiring myself with the right hand one, i discovered the left one which felt considerably easier. in total: 11 attempts at RH start and 6 on LH start
