Rockfax Description
Brilliant moves up the highest section of the wall just right of Empire of the Sun. Start 3m left of the arete.
Stretch up right past deep horizontal breaks, before moving left and up via some fingery moves to an easing and a shake out. Head leftwards to join the final moves of Empire of the Sun. © Rockfax

Silver lining after fucking up Empire flash. First attempt but have done both hard sections before. Much better finish than Just Revenge, felt like proper 7c+.

Found one move on the traverse into Empire particularly awkward.

Some great sequences. Took a big ride from below 4th draw to a couple of feet off the deck.

1st redpoint attempt, enjoyed this a lot but felt a bit tired from doing Just Revenge shortly before.
