Brilliant route, one of the best of the week. Crux is balls hard for 6c+ and required some serious cranking! Runout at the top on massive pockets and jugs. Perfect conditions and a great finish to a brilliant week.

Fell from chains, in the dark, upside down.

Got very scared and so downclimbed and jumped off. Rather runout at the top.

Last route of the holiday and what a stunning route to finish on. As hard as the 7a to the immediate right.
