[Andy G redpointing Sturgeon in the Cupboard 1st go, 4 kb]12m. A good hard route. It follows a big 'S' shape up the wall around the small bulge requiring some big pulls on small sharp holds. It eases with height but not by much. © ROCKFAX

Played about on this on a top rope between Cooley's red point attempts, way out of my league at the moment but managed to get every move and topped it out each time! Even lead the easy last bolt twice :-P

Put the clips in then had two redpoint burns, both failed on the undercut sequence, ran out of power. Felt tired today but should go next visit.

same old story, quick play years ago, steady today.
nathanlee - Lead RP - 21/Jul/13 with Dom Lee

first rp possibly lanked the crux?
mwatson - Lead RP - 25/Jun/13

Pretty psyched by this. The top moves on undercuts looked impossible but I lead in in overlapping halves 1st RP. Psyched to return to it.
