I prepared my rack for this one with small cams at the front either side. I placed a DMM Demon 1.5 cam in the first break before climbing up and down to the second break repeatedly trying to work out the holds and the second gear placement whilst getting insanely pumped. I ended up placing a desperate Demon 2.0 from below which gave me the confidence to work through some of the nicest moves I've done on a trad route before hitting the crux and struggling to move up whilst so pumped out. I yelled "take" to watch the second cam pop and desperately tried to climb down before taking my first trad fall. It wasn't high at all but it was still terrifying! I opened my eyes to find that Demon 1.5 holding strong but that was enough climbing for me that day. I will be back!

Found most of the difficulty lay in the gear placement rather than the climbing. Worth fiddling in a good zero cam, but significantly more strenuous from one side than the other. Nice moves - providing you're not pumped!

Higher break now badly scarred - handholds full of grit/sand when I reached where Edd is in Neil Morbey's photo. I used a Friend 2.5 and a small wire to protect the subsequent move up + R. Last route of a '10-star' day, mostly @ 5b - and definitely the hardest.

Well, bit of a mess up here, faffed with gear before crux, did not find good hold in thin layaway, rested on gear, went for it , found hold but somehow managed to clip karabiner on cam placement through belay device on muy harness as i moved up, realised that i could not move up, fell on gear which ripped out and ended up dangling a few inches above the ground. Will come and do this again but need a smaller cam.
