An impressive route that needs crisp conditions and features some unusual moves to gain and climb the shallow groove.

Don't be put of by the grade, it only feels 7b+ on the redpoint.

Crux holds are getting a bit polished
Crux hold has become very polished and feels damp. A new, slightly harder sequence is possible though.
Disgaree! did this in 1997 and again a few months ago. Couldn't tell any difference with the holds. It depends on the conditions, as always. With a bit of sun and a breeze the holds do not feel polished in the slightest bit.
Only played about on a toprope, and yes it is getting polished. Better get on and redpoint it soon!
A classic! Did a the weekend in nice crisp conditions. Definately didn't feel too greasy. The easiest of the 7c's I have done on Portland but 7c none the less. Did feel harder than some of the 7b+s I have done (Infernal Din to name but one) but more a reflection of their relative difficulty I think (contentiously...).
How can you say it is getting polished Fred when you haven't got any experience of what the route was like nearly 10 years ago?
The hold is in the best nick ive ever felt it in at the moment!
awesome line! the jug from under the roof has gone now so the rest is not quite as good before the crux! great slapping moves and a powerful roof! scarey clip as well on the arete! good times! :D
