Takes the wall and shallow groove 5m right of the prominant overhanging crackline of Fossil.
The start is very fingery and powerful whilst the upper groove eases, but is still tough and sequency. Luckily there is a good shakeout at half height.

The in-situ wire is now badly frayed. Do not rely on it to keep you off the ground!

Thankfully the frayed nut now has a bolt just underneath it. Going to need stronger fingers and better beta for this to go clean.

Third session after fall from last move last time. Slight beta improvements and use of removable knee pad helped. Felt fine today as these things always do. Think it's the hardest of the 7cs I've done.

Had heard this was soft (people missing the hard moves at the end of the boulder prob by going out right?), but actually found it pretty hard. Took a while to work out the boulder start but eventually did this through to the rest, then from the rest to the top. Wasn't getting that much back on the rest and the top is very droppable...

First 7c! 3 evenings, 1 day, then second red point of the second day. 9th red point in the end. Unlike most people I found a fairly steady way of doing the start, most of my falls were from by the chains. Whilst it's a popular route to slate I thought it had excellent moves on it, nicely sustained and thoroughly enjoyable.

Dan Jenkin 12/Aug/10 Lead RP

Sequence of powerful, bouldery moves going direct past the 1st bolt (the big pinch out on the right i don't think can be in at this grade), then great climbing to the top on surprisingly good holds.

BenNorman 21/Jun/10 Lead dog

Done in three parts but first boulder problem to the good holds! Also a right hand flake has broken off on the upper wall creating a second crux that is probably harder than the first, worth an upgrade? Must be harder!
