worked moves on first try then climbed clean second go. Found a short twisty sequence through the crux enabling a heelhook rest.

Directissima was busy so dogged this for a "warm-up". 5 redpoint goes later and still no tick. Highest point on last red-point was gunning for the chains having skipped the last clips - whipper! Very hot and sweaty! Felt hard, but very good.
Duncan Campbell - Lead dog - 20/Jul/14 with Malc the Scott

Directissima was busy so warmed up by putting the clips in this instead, after that it went 1st redpoint.

Took a while to find the weak mans way of doing the crux. Intense top section.
AJM - Lead RP - 15/Aug/13 with Simon de Haas

First go putting the clips in - felt much stronger than the day before.
Si dH - Lead RP - 14/Aug/13 with Andy Morris

Dropped 1st rp at the move into the final layaway, second rp slightly lower (not enough rest), then 3rd back getting into the layaway again. Should have gone.

Fell off with an armful of slack about to clip the lower off. Nearly did it again but didn't want to so didn't let go. Good fun.

Sean_J - Lead RP - 20/Jul/11 with Andy

Did this 2x. Tricky bit is near top and might be doable needs work. Also did; hardy anual (trdog) highway 395 (trdog) and witches brew- same. Witches brew v hard last move. sticky wicket looks like the one to go for.
