Rockfax Description
The best of the trio of 7as requiring stamina and ingenuity. Climb to the hole before pulling out right and up to some conglomerate. A further hard move gains better holds and a race for the lower-off. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A magnificent direct pitch, sustained and fingery but still low in its respective grade. A long reach or some cunning heek hooking helps.

A couple of holds were pretty grimy but not to blame for my unwillingness to work this. I'd already maxed out my steepness quota for the day.

Tried this for ages last year. Went second go today. Fun but not top 50 worthy in my opinion.

Dogged and Clip Sticked, struggling like crazy most of the way until the first decent hold past the crux. Crux very stiff for me (tall and lanky). Sadly, a fitting end to the worst day of climbing I've had in years managing to dog a 6a+ "dnf" a 7a on top rope and then this. Totally dejected :-( . . . . . . . still, tomorrow's another day eh? Post Edit: don't climb while injured :-( picked up a rotator cuff injury 2 weeks previous to this day which set me back months and months.
