30m. Essentially the direct start to Railway Children. Seven bolts of fingery and thin climbing of the finest quality (Decent shake at bolt 6) leads to the left end of the Railway Children traverse and also unfortunately its crux. Possibly the hardest of the 7c+ lines on the wall.
No longer run out at the start due to the addition of Vector Space.

A few inches higher on the crux. Big falls!

First attempt at redpointing and feeling it is quite far away. Couple of rests was the best attempt.

Koon 02/Sep Lead dog

Eureka! Found much more reliable beta for the long move. Route much more doable now.

Koon 01/Sep Lead dog

More work on the long reachy move. Still not a good hit rate in getting past the long move. Maybe 1 in 4 tries which is not good enough :(

Koon 27/Aug Lead dog

Second day on and line was dry. More practice on first bolt and a little on the 5th. Got a link from TW to RC.

Koon 26/Aug Lead dnf

Most of the top was unclimbable due to seepage and neither was the first bolt. The 5th bolt eventually dried to allow some more practice on the hard reachy move. Midges were hell.

Koon 20/Aug Lead dnf

Some sketchy sequence for the big long move to the 5th clip. Needs a bit of work to get it wired. Lead the first 4 clips cleanly. It was midge hell by 6 pm.

Koon 13/Aug Lead dnf

Got some sequence up to Railway Children apart from the big move to razor sharp crimps. Finger tips complaining with 2 days on.

Koon 12/Aug Lead dnf

Working out the moves from bolt to bolt again. Got a workable sequence for the first 3.

Day 1 - May have bitten off more than I can chew. Still, early days...

Major memory leak! Can't remember any beta from last year. Felt like the first time on it. It is going to be a long slog :(

A couple of quick goes on the RC crux. Think I have a sequence but nails. Lots of hard moves on fingernail sized crimps and super slim pinches. Shame season is over!

Koon 07/Sep/14 TR dog

RC crux is nails. Still haven't quite got the sequence yet...gawd knows how one is supposed to get through that after 7 bolts of hard climbing...

Koon 31/Aug/14 TR dog

Slowly getting the sequences to the start of Railway Children crux. Tough going....

Koon 27/Aug/14 TR dog

Much better today. Got the first 4 bolts clean on TR. Razor sharp holds and finger tips scarified.

Koon 25/Aug/14 TR dog

Ooh very hard. Can't even get the first bolt wired!!!!

Moves felt quite easy but only one rp attempt in me

2 rp attempts but not fit enough and need to work out better sequence for RC crux.

Defo 7c+, not hard enough for the 8a suggested above.

forgot how amazing this route is. all the moves came back to me. ready to go for redpoint again

got Elvis leg at poor rest below rc crux and was forced to move quicker than I wanted. Got through top crux to rh pinch and just ran out of steam.

with angus
julesp 25/Aug/12 TR dog

stripping route got it clean to the spike above rc crux. just forgot feet. Good recovery at rests feels close to going.

Cant blame the cold this time was just climbing rubbish! took some whippers

Fantastic route, a lot of hard moves to remember!

with iain n jules
julesp 09/Jun/12 TR dog

with iain and neil
julesp 02/Jun/12 TR dog

got all moves sussed up to where route moves into railway children which iv already worked. fingers and skin screaming! 2 days in a row is too much for my joints here. all moves sussed got a better sequence for crux courtesy of amanda. ready to start doing links.

julesp 26/May/12 TR dnf

must have been having a bad day on Wed cause felt much more doable today. Still nails but got sequence for crux now.

with kev, iain and neil, fraser

Not recommended as a warm up!Very fingery Top roped the first six bolts to help Jules with her sequence. Not as bad as I was expecting.

with iain n jules
julesp 23/May/12 TR dog
