Lovely moves. Didn't feel sustained. Very very well protected!

Excellent and not as sustained as it looked.

Very nice. Finally struck a decent balance between lacing it and going for it. Previously would have tried to place gear half way up the crux. Today just placed good gear and did it, positive mental attitude useful.

Felt like hard work to me but I don't spend much time on steep ground, this should prove I'm not a one trick pony! Getting through the first roof definitely felt like a bit of a fight! Plenty of opportunities for gear thankfully!

Not quite as clean or classic as the HVS and VS to the left but very pleasant climbing with tons of gear. Soft E1.

superb route, sustained with good gear. An excellent crux early on involving a tasty hand jam...

Hadn't really noticed this route before. Pretty much a harder version of MY. Well protected, up a crack. Can't be too hard because I could do it.
