Red Wall, the dark, dusty very ‘quarried’ looking wall below the golf club is full of lines on the still-to-do list.  It also has a few of the Top-50 routes for Clwyd.  After warming up on 39 And Counting, 6a on the Grid Iron, we nip over to Red Wall and welcome shade.  Another warmer on Day Of The Triffids, 6b+ and I start on Poison Ivy, 7a.  Given 7a on Gary’s website, but after trying it, I would agree with the 7a+ grade given on UKC.  It’s hard work up to the hands-free rest at half way, then it’s steady 6b+/c climbing to the anchors.  Dusty but nice.  I even managed to pull off a couple of holds, which won’t help.  Recommended.

Poison Ivy, 7a+
