Rockfax Description
Brean Down's best sport route is well worth tracking down. Start on the large block as the ledge levels out.
Step off the block into a steep corner and follow it strenuously to a semi-rest at the mid-height break. Step left and crank up the fingery wall before moving left to join Brean Topping at its last bolt. © Rockfax

1st go today, putting the draws in after warming up on Pearl Harbour. Made all the bank holiday traffic and rush against a swiftly incoming tide worthwhile!

Workable now dry. Few tweaks for crux and went.

Misha 14/Apr Lead dog

Annual battle to no avail. Didn’t do as well as this time last year, though to be fair some of the holds were wet. On the crux struggled to get RF up onto the pinch but got alternative beta from Tim: from the first pocket go RH not LH to second pocket, LH on crimp next to second pocket and then rock over. Pretty tired afterwards so dogged it on the second go.

Better than I expected given this was the first day out on rock this year. Three goes: first go got to the top bolt to bolt fairly quickly, second go 2 rests, third go best high point - fell off going for the second pocket by the 5th bolt, then dogged as was spent. Starting off the block each time. Next time? At the initial bulge go LH in vertical crack by the bolt and throw RH for the crimp and again for the jug. For the crux definitely need to rock over onto high RF on a good nubbin by 4th bolt. On pumpfest traverse left to the flattie by 6th bolt, go LH, LH, RH to vertical side pull, balancey move LH to flattie.

Still hard! Got spent figuring out the moves and putting the draws in. Second go dogged it again and couldn't clip the last bolt (easier to do from the next hold rather than pumpy swapping on the jug below the bolt?). Third go on TR, still dogged it but was tired and fingers were hurting from the sharp holds and pockets. Need another day on it! Mark got it on his first proper redpoint, good effort!

After watching Ian on the bottom crux, got to the resting ledge in one go. Got beta on the crux from a guy at the crag - very useful as the pockets weren't immediately obvious. Two very hard moves, first getting the pocket next to the triangular incut and then getting the crimp above with a high right foot (crux for me). The rest of the moves are just hard as opposed to very hard! Apart from the awkward rest (not too bad in a semi sitting down position on one leg), there is little respite until the last few moves. Got to the top first go with lots of attempts on the two hard moves. By the second go I was a bit spent so couldn't do the hard move to the rest ledge clean despite trying from the ground several times. In the end could only do it after a rest on the bolt. Getting the left foot high seems to do the trick but it's still a hard pull when tired. Dogged the rest but improved the foot positioning for the crux - getting the left foot up slightly helped to get the right foot in position. Took a couple of falls trying to clip the last bolt as was getting pretty pumped but managed it in the end just as Ian was suggesting grabbing the draw! One to come back to - should go with more work and being fresh for the redpoint.
