Good cams, but you have to commit at the top.

A boiling day on the Costa del Curbar, not really ideal for grit climbing. The crack was fairly steady until the top few moves. Moved up to the undercut, didn't like it and tried to reverse down to the rest, which was a mistake as it was quite hard to reverse and I peeled off. Went for it the second time round and it wasn't that hard to move past the undercut. The finishing moves on the other hand proved to be quite testing - unhelpful slopers leading to some heather. Eventually managed to find some slightly juggier slopers on which it was possible to pull out. Really annoying as I hadn't failed to do an E2 clean for a long time. Unfortunately Su couldn't figure out the start and gave up, so ended up abbing it.

One hard move and a bit of pump at the top. Slipped off carelessly, gutted to miss the onsight. Ah well.
