Rockfax Description
A fine route up the centre of the wall, starting at the notch. The climbing is tough, the holds are generally poor, and there are no runners. The landing is pretty grim too! A left-hand variation is Spike at f7B which is easier to pad out. © Rockfax

Been wanting to do this for ages. Bad fall potential, but steady climbing and over really quick.

On another day I would have gone for the flash, but with the shoulder as/is - and the fact there was already a top rope in place - I figured now was as good a time as any. Nice to get it done.

With a couple of pads and a rope didn't feel too scary. After all, its only 5 moves long...

Quick play on the ab rope, 2 TR's then sent. Really good climbing on great rock. First non highballed E6

Was always going to be a long shot to get this dialed with trashed skin, warm weather and the darkness coming on quick!

Good route, found it quite hard.

Great route, which felt awesome with such good conditions. Solo was pretty steady :)

Wow, this felt hard! Managed to shunt solo it clean on my 6th go then couldn't get it again, pretty sure it would feel easier without my back pack swinging about on the end of the rope, would be pretty serious solo especially with that landing!

Straightforward. Climbed on a very hot day in July. No cheating pads. Whoever has voted this at E7 is having a laugh.
