Rockfax Description
The white, overlap-strewn groove provides a classy piece of technical climbing. Requires crisp conditions. Start just down and right of the arete.
Move up the open groove on hidden holds and pull through the overlaps on slopers, before making long moves right and up to a welded on block. Follow the wall above to finish. © Rockfax

The draws where in so I thought I’d have a training burn

Very frustrating route, either the crimps greasy or a foot pops! Brilliant when it goes though. Unexpected send second session.

Awesome! So pleased to do this after numerous sessions spread over about 2 yrs. 1st RP today after not trying it for several months.

At last! About 6 sessions I think, in the same year as onsighting quite a few other 7c+. Might not be my style but I think this is pretty hard! Brilliant route. Way better than it looks.

Led up to the second to last bolts, going well up to the 3rd bolt then dogged the 4th, then too tired to finish. Plus it was getting dark. Will be back to link it all!

First Redpoint attempt, really cool and did it after the direct version. Were bad conditions today; really sunny and warm but enjoyed the sun after all this rain. I want to do it again!
