excellent if painful

More like the art of slicing a fingertip off. Not sure how it's a classic with a crimp like that.

Thought it would take me ages to remember my sequence but didn't take too long!! Ended up reaching same highpoint as before. Struggling to get the right foot up still. Will be back ASAP. Was good to get the movement redialled anyway. Fingers crossed I get it done!

Conditions were sub par but even so this felt harder than almost every 7b+ I have ever done. It is classic techy grit vert though so it has to be sandbag. Doesn't detract from its quality.

One of the best 7b's in the peak

Worked out all the beta and felt really strong, up until the moment that I circumcised my front two fingers on the upper right hand crimp. WAH!

Ooooh so close!! Highpoint was last go with both hands on arete of groove moving right foot up, unfortunately went through a tip on that go so called it a day. Absolutely mega powerful, technical climbing. Cannot wait to get back on it - hopefully tomorrow if skin allows?

Remember this feeling desperate a few years ago, today it felt relatively straightforward - something that is probably attributed to both climbing better and the exceptional conditions.

Went in a few goes just needed to get the right sequence. Good way to end the day.

~6 goes. Awesome line, wanted to do it for ages. Really pleased it went relatively quickly courtesy of some youtube beta.

Retro Flash. Tried it with Dan a few years back and got shut down, felt easy today. Amazing technical climbing. 7b+?
