New route in Crucifix Cave!

1st March 2017 | Sections:  Bolting,  New Climbs,  Victoria Lines

 

It's a new line, quite long and very overhanging, smack in the middle of Crucifix Cave. 
We tried to weave the line through the best portions of rock, but the route is new and the rock fractured in spots, so please wear helmets if you try it and also if you belay someone on it!
Otherwise the bolting should be quite safe (11 titanium bolts and a titanium chain).
Thanks to Andrew, Roland, Kurt, Marek, Simon who variously helped in this complex bolting effort.
Proposed grade: 7a
For the name, I had other names in mind, but given some recent events I would like to call the route simply "Cristina", in honor of a very brave young woman, of whom I am proud to be the father.
