Rockfax Description
A great route, with a couple of difficult sequences that are hard to read. Climb up to the first bolt and get stood up on a good ledge to clip the second. Hard moves right past this lead to a third bolt where sustained climbing leads past the fourth and fifth bolts. The direct finish is the same grade, but involves a very hard pull; most people move right and traverse back left to the lower-off. © Rockfax

So good, one of the best slate sport routes I've done. Done 2nd RP. Not easy, was 7a+, 7b in new guide but I've done easier 7b+s and don't think it'd raise many questions at 7b+ anywhere else.

Fell from last move on the retro-flash attempt, pumped stupid. Sent first redpoint.

In light rain, one fall on crux. Must go back, cool route.

About F7b. An excellent and pretty tricky crux. Led 2nd redpoint having fluffed the first redpoint because I gave myself duff beta.

nails! 3 attempts at the crux each ended in a fall - sequence specific?
