Christine is a classic F8a, first climbed by Ken Palmer back in 2002 and first soloed in 2003.
Gav tells of his recent ascent:
"I first tried it last year at the end of the day but came off at the end of the first crux. I returned this week and after a few falls I went down on a rope to chalk the hold. I then went back on the route working it out a move at a time, falling each time a move higher - going on to finally do the route on my ninth go."
