Failed. Backed down a few meters off the ground. I think my nut placement compromised the hold I was trying to use.

felt strong, messed around 'placing' high wires to no avail. came down, committed, couldn't reach the top, and jumped off onto the low runner. better than last time but not much.

An ok attempt. Managed to get two wires in the upper section of the crack - very very hard to place. They were okish. Had a half hearted attempt. Maybe next time when I improve my uber difficult to place gear placing skills...

Mess. slipped off a damp foothold downclimbing from the crux and weighted the nut, but had to have another rest to reach the ledge anyway. on remus's gear. About as bad style as you can get without chipping holds.

Really nice moves. Guidebook description is pretty accurate as it's pretty difficult to place gear, so I fell.

Third go with a mat and spotters. Interesting feeling about for a good hold on the ledge.

Decked from last move before it joins Beech Nut. Broken femur.

Oops. Lack of committment to even move waist over gear and poor wire placing conspired to make for a rather shoddy effort.
