new F7a on Wonderwall

... taking the front face/ arete of the Obelisk above Aladdins Lamp. Named Border Patrol, in honour of the friendly uniformed Omani chaps who came up to chat with Tom, Marvin and I under the crag one
evening a few weeks ago. Apparently they thought we'd got a vehicle stuck in the dune but it puzzled me as to how they felt their AK47s were going to help dig?

The route is quite steep.

Here are a few blurry video stills:

Many thanks to Bernard for helping me equip the route mid-summer and supplying further belaying yesterday.
