A hard lower wall is the prelude to difficult finger locking in the overhanging crack. A hard dyno leads to a (now) fairly straightforward mantle.

Stuck at the last move, that loose finger lock before the big reach just couldn't pull through.

Psyched to onsight this, been wanting to try an onsight of this for ages!

Account open. Top crack seeping. Worked lower wall. Bit short to easily reach top S.P, need to find a more solid seq.

Ticked! 9th go...fell on the top two moves 6 times...I've been told to take 8a, so I am! Harder than liquid crystal.

Really powerful on hard to seat fingerlocks good though feels closer to 8a than 7c+ haven't done it though so thoughts may change.

2nd working session - hard at first, then remembered beta. Foot popped going up to last move...this should go soon!

Worked the route - can do all the moves - and link it with one rest...will definitely leave penultimate clip free as couldn't clip it...hard top sequence for sure - 1 star route - should get within a few more tries...then leaving the wave!

Felt harder in rockboots than in trainers, while actually trying the moves.

If you're going to try a 7c+/8a in trainers anyway then this one's a good one.
