<< Stiff and Sticky < Fine Feathered Fink  |  The Fog > Misty Vision >>

This route has lost a hold and has not been reclimbed hence the grade is unconfirmed - formerly 8a. A strenuous route with one very hard move. Use a cunning heel/toe jam to reach a small crimp in the bulge, from where a quick dynamic snatch gains a good jug. Pull up and follow better holds to reach and finish up Fine Feathered Fink.

Crazy moves at the start maybe 7a move then easier 6b climbing. Its like a Font 7c followed by a 7b+ route. May be possible to miss out the crux if your`e a dyno expert.

I think you did this with a hard sequence Rob to make it warrant Font 7c. You can get set up for the crux move to the jug with a good left heel-toe. Then its easiest to just spring for the jug, its a bit of a dyno but such a good jug if you hit it you hold it. More like Font 7b/+ like this. One of my favourite hard routes at Dinbren though.

Yeah I think you're right Chris i think I thought I was actually stronger than I actually was when I did it, it's cool moves though eh! Glad these routes are seeing some attention. Maybe it's 8a but then elite syncopations is definately 7c+ ;)

Surprised myself and did this 1st RP today despite having only climbed 7c so far this year.It isn't 8a+ if you dyno to the jug. probably hard 8a, font 7b into french 7b+. Not sure about Elite tho, will have to try again

Did this yesterday. Didn't exactly do dyno method, brought feet above roof and popped for jug. Thought this was about font 7a+/b, rest was about 7b sport. Hard one to grade but I reckon 8a is fair.
