The Project- Summer 2008
The project- Many great climbers have failed on this and I no-doubt shall also. I abed down it a couple of weeks ago though and it looked quite do-able. It's the natural and direct finish to an E7 6c and this direct finish would definately be the hardest and the best route in the moors. Pure class. The over-hanging moves at the top scare you on abseil, and after your last OK friend slot you are left with a 12 foot boulder problem of the up-most difficulty. I've been working on my bouldering, but I imagine the crux move is going to be an emense, over-hanging rock with only undercutting the break for holds. A more experienced climber recons E8 7a, but I don't think its more than 6b/c. Still, i'll give it a top rope and we'll see.
