2nd go.

Excellent route with great moves at the last 2 bolts. These moves are probably 6c+ but a cracking route. Climbed twice as the first time I did some clip drop fall practice on it without realising how good it was so (3 stars I think) did it again later in the day and enjoyed it in one push. Lovely :)

Head wasn't feeling quite settled, so 3/4 way up just lobbed off with no warning so I could take a wee fall and settle it down. Went on to run double and single laps on this on TR for the rest of the day as enduro training.
