StephenBleakley 7 Jan Lead rpt My first 7a, such an amazing route as well with varied and interesting climbing. Put up draws in the morning but then it got too warm so we left the draws in and got got it second attempt later when it got cooler. I was even able to throw my entire arm into a pocket after the final crux to briefly rest before the steep jugfest at the end.
