Warmed up getting the clips in then got it next go. Really pleased, it's such a great route and it all felt pretty steady today, helped by a cunning knee bar followed by a hands off rest on the block!

Jenni Myers - TR dnf - 30/Aug/13

1 toprope, 2 lead attempts. Fell off the final move going to clip the chains! Should have rehearsed going right a bit more. 2nd attempt was absolutely exhausted. One to go back for!

RP3. Just felt really on-off at the top move, did it different ways everytime. Did Barguest too, but silly slip early on and tricky to read top out, will come back. Raining but dry.
