Lost confidence on the final crimps. I blamed my sprained thumb, but it was obviously a lack of commitment, no excuses, should have got it first go.

This was the first outdoor route of the year. Fluffed the finishing move and fell. Took a while to work it out but got it in the end. Tricky to read.

Dan was a let down, had to re-climb to strip gear.

Nick Sherring 16/Dec/12 Lead dog

not too bad til the last moves to the belay which seemed very hard for the grade, i think this was the one i ended up doing some kind of lateral mono - tough!

That finish! Average route, nothing brilliant. An awkward mantle onto a shelf half way and an absolute stopper of a finish! Well bolted before the crux and a good rest before the hard move. Went up and tried a few sequences and downclimbed to the rest. Had one rest on the rope (no idea why as I should have just down climbed again!) and then commited to some painful finger jamming to make the loweroff!

Can't call it an onsight in good conscious as the wall between the last bolt and lower-off was covered in ice and snow, so had to pendulum-swing over to the lower-off to the right. A nice route though
