Trying to flash it with Mark's beta I fell off the final hard move. Then use had two spot attempts where I forgot my sequence. On my final go I did the hard section then fell off the lower wall when I forgot my sequence. Muppet. Nice moves though

A few attempts on top rope. Didn't managed to get it clean but think I have most of the moves sorted. Just need to get a little stronger and then come back! Excellent route though, steep start with the crux being between the 2nd and 3rd bolt. Very well bolted though

planning on a flash attempt, turns out oaksi couldnt remember what the route looked like let alone the moves (he dogged his way up the 6b+ to the right to put the clips in for me!). so ended up salvaging something out of it by going clip to clip on it. back soon to finish it!
