Rockfax Description
The narrow slanting corner and leaning wall right of Mayday gives some exceptional climbing on a tight line. Start just right of the base of the wide central groove of Mayday.
Climb the wall right of the bolts to a point where a long stride left can be made into the base of the narrow stepped corner. Climb the corner, then move back left to good holds before climbing directly to the top via some fingery and then powerful moves. Can be started by moving in from Mayday at 7b+. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Starting up Thread Flintstone reduces the grade. The line is tight but often the pocket is used from the right, to gain the finger crack.

Pleasantly surprised to be falling off the top after having a cold

3rd go. How this gets 3 stars I don't know! Painful and slippy

A fair bit of effort has gone into this one, but first try today and it went down with very little fight. First route above 7b!

Did the crux in isolation but have decided I don't like the climbing, sacking it.

Tricky! Went up to work it then had a few goes but always fell on the lower section at the long stride left. Was fairly tired by this point in the day. Definitely one to come back for!

Finally stuck the last move. Awesome route and I much prefer the direct right hand start to the 7b+ variant. Thanks to Nikki for the belay!

2 attempts, pleasantly surprised to cruise the lower crux this time but fell after the final draw before the lower off. Really need to extend this next time.

Nick Russell 27/Sep/15 Lead dog

Didn't really give it enough effort to even call a good working attempt. Did most of the moves, but not the stride left. That move at the top would be a heartbreaker on the RP!

A popular day to be at TorBryan! Good first session - got all the moves, and linked decent sections on top rope. Made some errors on lead, and left exhausted. Inspired to get back on it, great route.

Not that much harder than the LH, despite the harder moves.

Awesome route, top is so droppable, especially for me with no endurance, fell off the top 1st RP, held it together on the 2nd, slapping wildly! Dead chuffed

Very memorable. Blew the top sequence 2nd go. 3rd go scraped through the first crux. Torrential rain started whilst recovering on the shakeout. Gave it 110% - skipped the final clip and went big to a pretty gripping finish in the wet.

Nice climbing with a very droppable top ! Did first

quiffhanger 04/Mar/12 Lead dog

Moves felt easy but a little too tired to link. Really good except start spoiled by being so close to Thread Flinstone. Top pinch seeping: required long hard deadpoint from undercling to avoid it.

bloody hell! way to hard for me at the moment, though josh did well and linked most of it. i got stuck setting up for the lower crux- kept peeling off before i could properly get into the finger lock before the step across.one day perhaps.
