Rockfax Description
Still one of the hardest routes on sandstone more than 25 years after the first ascent. Start up Leave it to Me and make a technical traverse left out onto the face. Finish over the roof. © Rockfax

Went very swiftly thanks to the beta from Timm (2 RPs) . Only just 7c if it actually is (seems too easy after the start too me to be worth 7c). Very height/reach dependant to reach the better crimps in the rail. (I'm 5'8" and could just make the span). This might explain the wide range of grade opinion?. Being tall would make it much easier.

Wow, didn't expect to be clipping the belay on this one tonight! As far as grade's concerned I've no idea, I'll reserve my vote until I've got more experience at this level.

Interested to see the recent video. I notice a lot more moves than we used to do. The climber is moving up from much lower footholds, and going right handed from the moves out from the matchstick. Might be harder that way. The route was quite popular in the mid 90s, before the jug came off (at the lip) and smashed the belayers knees in (ouch). In reply to Morgan - Left Handed. The route has had a lot more than 7 Ascents - I know 5 others not listed here. This used to be considered Fr7b+, I'm glad I held out and graded it Fr7c :)
