Broke a hold which cost me the on sight. Makes it slightly harder without that jug!

Did the whole climb but was too pumped to clip the chains. Not really the best route for a warm up!

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!
