Pretty close to the onsight, but skipped after a poor foot hold choose. Got straight back on and climbed to the top.

Led cleanly up to the slab near the top, then totally ran out of energy - exhausted as third day on.

Red project. Amazing climb, need to go back to get it clean. Managed to clip 9 clean. All moves sorted, just ran out of steam!

Really enjoyed it on first attempt - 1 fall working out the crux and then 1 rest after it. Unfortunately too tired for a successful redpoint.(and toes too sore!)
