UKC Logbook Description
13th route. The obvious right hand crackline in the central main face.
10 bolts to lower off

Two loose rocks on strawberry jam that have been marked with an X if it has not washed off. ( On is on the higher arete section after the crux and the other is the block under the chains!)

2 goes. All felt ok apart from the crux, still not quite sure how to do that.

1st redpoint attempt, once the moves are worked out it felt fine

Well, wasn't really expecting that. Tried it once for the first time a couple days ago, the couple crux moves seemed a little tricky but not unachievable. Came back today and ticked it first go. Love the jam move!

almost had it, fell near the top due to bad light and lack of practice . got the crux sorted so should go next time

J1_TOV 09/Apr/16 Lead RP

Tried this at least 5 times since 2014. At last I felt strong enough and got it fairly quickly today with some grunting (ahem) and a couple of run throughs.

Stuart William 09/Apr/16 Lead RP

2nd go. Felt soft but cool moves. Easy to drop for sure but felt pretty steady on the whole. Psyched to get it so quick.

1st RP today after equipping clip to clip. Just followed the line of bolts, didn't have to think about wandering off route really...

A good climb. Feels slightly contrived by the proximity of the route to the left but still very good and on grade in my opinion.

Well, got the moves of a sort. Most of the crucial holds leading up to the first crux (layback, high right foot and flag) were soaking. The moves above this were difficult as well. Will take some working on but I think it will go (so much harder than anything I've Red Pointed previously).

The pockets before the crux were soaking. Did all the hard moves in one link but had to stop to dry one hold before the crux move which had a constant stream of water runnikng into it!

Finally sent with Ben putting the clips in. Did the version going out left. Then we worked the moves for staying just in the crack. Finger locking and hand jamming in South Wales who would have thought it! It will go...

Took a while to work out cru sequence as couldn't do it how I did previously. Linked from beneath crux to top in one go second time.

1 fall on top wall. Some fatty has pulled off the good flake on the top wall right of the crack ;). Used a small tip jam instead. (still managed to avoid the hand mangling flared jam I used on the F.A.)

Just about worked out the crux move now I think, although may need some refining.

In light rain with some damp holds. Good sequences. Probably Fr7b+ if you avoid the holds on the route to the left.

Clips were in but not seen anyone climb the groove and wall. Excellent unusual flowing moves. Not quite 7b+ unfortunately!

1st redpoint after tring briefly a while ago, found a good sequence and managed to get up it in pretty much torrential rain, soft?

Good moves on good rock with sustained interest to the top; much more varied than typical sandstone crimp pulling; deserves a couple of stars in my opinion. Those that voted "Bag of.." can't have climbed it.
