Warmed up then sent 1st go. (Yeeha!) Really nice technical and varied route, tiny crux holds!

Widda 12/Oct/17 2nd dog

worked the moves then 2 failed RPs on 2nd.

Good little route. Got second go. A slippery on the crux holds so didn't hold on hard enough.

Great route, thin moves! I peeled off the crux on the onsight, and did it next go.

Well annoyed to mess up the onsight, just misread the holds. Got second go, steady away.

First 7a redpoint! Really psyched to get this. Clip sticked up and work out moves. Had a few goes getting sequence dialled. Took 30 min rest then top roped once to re warm up then led it. Extended 3rd bolt (couldn't reach it off ledge unlike Ewan!) and extended 4th so I could clip before balancey traverse left. Prob didn't need to extend the 4th but pretty happy either way!

First 7a outdoors, fantastic climb. Thin moves, seemingly easier crux for the shorter climber :)

clipsticked the draws in and had a go at the crux. first go felt easy

Couldn't handle the crux. Nice to try 7a anyhow.

max_dickens 12/Feb/16 Lead dog

Damn Foot slip at the end of the crux, Great to be getting back outside nonetheless

Very good climbing crimp on weird sharp holds then an awkward layback move to gain the juggy flake , well placed bolts.

with mum
Crimps@67 ?/Feb/16 TR dog

Sharp holds through the overlap onto the slab and then puzzling moves to the juggy flake.

Really good route. Fell off on crux on onsight attempt. Finished it. During lower off practised the crux 2 or 3 times then got it clean on 2nd go ground up. Crux is hard especially if you're not that tall.

Did this in light rain, very warm and humid but the rock was fine. Did it on the first go after an attempt a few weeks ago.

Definitely should have flashed this! Easy with rests right up to finish and just slipped off hard move before finishing jugs, taking the rest of the skin off my fingers. Got back on and did the move fine.

My first proper Orme route, amazing climbing. Tricky crimpy section through the lower bulge then an awesome technical crux section up top on tiny crimps and a mono! I would highly recommend this to anyone operating at this grade!

Top Crux is good sequence once worked out

!st RP. Couldn't hang on long enough to read it on the onsight, difficult to know where to go at 3rd bolt and what to do at penultimate bolt. Felt ok on RP though.

Very good route probably easy to walk past. Not nails but tricky. sustained climbing on blind holds but with good rests, to a hard technical finish on the headwall
