Getting the pocket was hard for my height, but finally did it! Well chuffed.

2nd RP, skipped the top clip in favour of glory first time round and blew it, resulting in quite a nasty rope burn to my wrist. Utilising rests better made the difference on the second go. Really good climbing, solid rock and great moves. Worth the stars.

Took flight a few times! Thought I might onsight it but spent too long figuring out what to do on the undercuts and pumped out. Pleased to get that far though as it's worth 7a to there. Second go latched the jug and fell off! Bumpin up the right foot a bit made all the difference to holding it. Third go got the jug but foot skidded off a damp sloppy foothold on the penultimate move! Got it fourth go, was getting tired but climbed it well and made the most of the rests. Good route.

Pleased to onsight after wasting energy low down trying to go too direct and climbing in bendy slippers. Removed loose block near the top on the way down. Good pitch well bolted for a change.

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

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.

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.

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

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.
