2nd go, left out the key left side pull in the crux.

Mick r 03/Oct/14 Lead dog

struggled with the crux but went after using a slightly higher foot.

dave_middleton 03/Oct/14 Lead dog

A few parts which needed the sequence working out. Good moves.

Took a couple of falls getting the side pull before the 3rd bolt. Didn't have the bottle to go further thinking I'd be in a tricky position with loads of slack going for the clip.

Final move a little too run out for my liking. Top rope clean so will try RP next visit.

Did it with two rests the day before and it felt pretty hard. Today it felt relatively easy - knowing how to do the crux moves and where the rests were made a big difference. Is redpointing the way forward?

Very good route, pretty sustained with hard technical crux. Bolts are spaced enough to add just a bit of excitement.
