Back on this, a year on from last time, another rainy spring day! Didn't get much time on it. First go clean to the side pulls above the second bolt but couldn't remember exactly what to do after that. Worked it out eventually - LH up to a flattie above the L pinch/sidepull, RF up, RH up into last sidepull on R, stand up with LH going up to good hold in the break, then race the pump to the jug out R! TRed for the burn afterwards and got to the break clean but fell off after that. Should go next time if I get enough time on it, it's not *that* hard!

Really nice line with layaways and a few undercuts up top. Quite powerful but all good holds. Felt steady 1st redpoint.

Felt far easier than when I tried it a few days ago, got it on my first attempt after dogging it to get the clips in. Such a nice sequence (though tough) of moves from the 1st to 3rd bolt,

Not enough left in right arm to get through the half way strenuousity.

with misha, ian wyatt
Misha 05/Apr/14 Lead dog

So close! Worked out all the moves pretty quickly on the first go, bolt to bolt from the second bolt. Might have got it second go but unexpectedly slipped off a side pull. Third go I almost got to the finishing jugs but hesitated, didn't find the undercut out right and fell off. Fourth go (after a short rest) I missed a foothold going up from the third clip. Annoying but definitely one to come back to. Great climbing with some powerful moves between decent holds, nothing desperate but no rests either after the first bolt. Was greasing up a bit from the damp air, which didn't help, but on the whole it was a great stolen day considering it rained fairly heavily on the walk in!

Went to the lower off on max 'is wall, don't think I missed any climbing out. Is the normal lower off the tree?

Oh no, no again! this time I actually held the jug from where to clip the chains from, only to some how slip off. Managed to fall from the top to below the first bolt. Having said that, flowing, quite technical climbing.

3rd RP. Very nice crux, with some shuffling around on sidepulls and a large gaston rockover. Felt absolutely trashed by the 3rd bolt. . .
