Second go, completely missed the pocket yesterday and couldn't be bothered to try again. Fine today without the sun in my eyes.

Fantastic route. Moves really flowed nicely, sometimes not even being able to see the next hold until I was already on it having done the move before and just had to trust the flow of the route. Noticed that I was moving very close to the other routes despite being next to the bolts. Felt hard for 7a.

Got to last 2 bolts, seemed tricky.

Tough little section high up, with pretty strenuous moves off little holds. Improvisation required on the onsight!

Got lost and took a 30 footer on the on-sight attempt. Worked the moves but never made the link. Way harder than 7a, local knowledge suggested there are easier 7bs in El Chorro

One of the best routes of its grade at El Chorro. Hard to read sequence

No time in the day. Holds are much better than what can be seen from the ground.

Nice sustained climbing, to many routes in to short a space. couldn't figure out the crux and went right onto the wrong route.
JPGR - Lead - 24/Mar/10

TR 2ce up to a point. thereafter which it felt impossible according to tom. perhaps a bit of rock fell off...?
