not so direct. went left at the top. seemed illogical to go right to make it harder before moving left.

my first 7a+! took 19 climbs to get it but eventually caught the pocket and didn't flap it afterwards! I thought hard for the grade!

Blew onsight through my own stupidity. Ignored the obvious bolts and chalked holds and headed left too early before final moves, doh! Very good move at the top once I was back on track.
kevg - Lead dog - 23/Sep/13 with Fraser

Very very fine climbing. Felt hard for 7a+ but that could have been the Comedy effect from the day before!!!! Great moves left at the top.

Took a whip on O/S, lovely rope burn. 1st RP. Direct up wall at start, direct flight? tricky at top.

robbed clip stick for first 2. second clip is groundfall off shit holds. traverse almost wired. took whipper from 5th or 6th clip, which i couldnt make off rail with shit feet. Awesome undercut moves. lead next time, at least up to whichever one i didnt clip. bolt to bolt from there?

Think I went a little to far left at top as didn't have guide. Still felt nails for 7a+, so pumpy!

Seems more feasible than before but still horribly sustained.

Overoptomistic OS attempt. Bottle ran out at fifth and threw in and grabbed draw. Bit run-out for my nervous disposition. Quivered the rest of the way up.

Got to 3rd bolt from top on os then got to the next one but too scared to fall off on the next move. Must be less of a wimp.
