UKC

Rockfax Description
Begin just left of the big tree. Climb the initial thin wall to ledges above which fingery moves reach good holds and a rest on the right (junction with Drop Test ). Step up and back left moving up the wall to a break. Pull straight up to good flake holds and take these until moves left join the last moves of Drop Test. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The now fully bolted excellent and direct line on the walls to the right starting just left of the big tree. Climb to and past a sloping ledge before tackling the rather blank wall to gain good holds and a rest on the right below the Drop Test flake. Step up and back left onto the wall the up to gain a break. Take flakes to the right of the bolts leading up and slightly right to a big spike. Step left and go directly through a bulge on good layaways to reach mega jugs at the top. The lower-off is on the left.
Part bolted 2014 and then fully in 2020 with a direct finish.

βeta: Climbed direct through the crux at two thirds height, seemed hard for 7a but using the crack in the right seemed like it would be cheating. So many bolts!

βeta: Flake snapped off on the upper section of wall. Wasn’t sure whether to reach right to the crack here anyway. Felt harder than 7a going direct and will be even harder now.
