<< Postman Pat < The Cider Soak  |  The Lynch > Pet Cemetery >>

The hardest sport climb in the south of the UK takes in the crux of Tuppence and a whole lot more hard climbing. Start as for The Cider Soak.
Move up to the overhang and traverse left to join A Fisherman's Tale. Now go left and down slightly to join and follow Tuppence to just above its last hard move. Go left and finish direct.

This is harder than 8c, I have no doubt. It takes in most of the hard climbing on Poppy (8b+), reverses the crux of Postman Pat (8a+), climbs almost all of Tuppence (8b), and then adds a hard 7c finish. Total Nails. Needs straightening out on the section into Tuppence to make it a better line. A fitting swan-song from Mr Palmer.

How the hell do you reverse a 8a+ crux?!
