Couldn't get through the bulge.

with PCC

Well, after initial tries, I thought easier that Clarian Call but as the repoint attempts started to stack up it became clear that perhaps the new 7a+ grade is merited.

Cool climbing. After a bit of TR practice, two RP attempts failed to secure the expected tick. Most unsatisfactory. :)

Desperate! I tried to climb this as a warm up. Got through the low crux only to fall from the jugs. Didn't have a second go.

Felt hard first time, but found a sneaky toe for the crux which took the sting out of it. First RP.

4 attempts. Didnt quite get it. Got a bit psyched out, first by the traverse left due to being a wimp and then by the reachy rock up at mid height. Not a good performance - need to get more sport done to get head back in right place.
