Wet, dirty and polished - and not a warm up, but only thing nearly dry on this wet day. Nice moves all the same. Defeated by the sidepull into the high(wet)sloper.

Very hard for the grade, at least in today's conditions, wouldn't argue with 7a. The sloper that you have to latch at the third clip was sopping wet, to the extent that I had to clip stick up to the bolt and dry the hold with a beer mat. After that it was still very damp but just about climbable! Got it second go. A great little route, technical and fairly physical, with a fun finish over the last bulge.

Wet, grimy, and a poor choice of warm-up so abandoned.
