Rockfax Description
From the glued flakes gain a shattered flake below a glued bolt. The easier method uses small layaways out to the right to reach into the flake. The Hard Way avoids the layaways out to the right and rocks straight for the flake - same grade but a bit harder. The Original is f7C and involves rocking onto the polished sloper rather than the jug. The sit-start is f7B+. The Kudos Traverse starts as for Kudos and finishes on the jugs of The Press, f7B. © Rockfax

Success on the one attempt I used zero technique, feet pinging off all over the place.

Fell off the last move multiple times. Bit to warm today...

Tried a variety of methods, none worked

I was given better beta, as rocking over on the heel left me unable tomove off it. right hand in pocket, left hand to lower flake, riight toes onto jug rail, right hand up to flake, swap feet, right foot out rght on something to push off of, throw to finishing flake with left hand.

charvey 10/May Sent dnf

Got from both hands on the jug rail to start, right hand into slot, left hand to flake, righ heel to the jug rail, right hand slapping the next flake up and right and then falling off.

Couldn't repeat the hard way but did this method quite easily today, despite not being able to touch it before.
