A good climb on perfect rock. The first bolt is high but the climbing is relatively easy. From an undercut on Arm Worms, move right to a crack then balance rightwards to a small undercut. A long move gains rounded holds. Rock up to crimps beneath the bulge and climb this to a hidden lower-off.

Easy 6c+/hard 6c - I honestly do not think that this can warrant 7a. But is it rather good nonetheless.

I thought this tricky. A full notch harder than Inaugal Goose Flesh 6c+ and harder than nearby Fighting Spirit 7a (did both oK but could not complete the rockover on this one?). You may be right Sam at 6c+ but i'll need another go first before I can agree.

Got it this time but not without incident. First red point for me at 7a but my partner took a big fall pulling over the top on his lead. TV size block gave way mid mantel after last bolt and hit 3rd partner on ground. Incapacitated him and needed helicopter air lift off. Severely bruised but luckily no broken bones - thanks to Rob, Lee Guy and others who all helped co-ordinate rescue.
Top of route now needs stabilising!
