Hidden - Lead RP - Oct/14

A guy on it before me pulled something off the start leaving a positive sidepull crimp so its now possible to miss out the two hardest moves on the route from first to second bolt and do one easier one instead. Hoping it might still just be worth 7b+ but maybe that's too optimistic? The first bolt is too high and hard to clip. I had to go up to the clipping hold with the wrong hand (for the next moves) to make the clip, then down climb and restart. The route finishes (like Subculture) in the middle of the wall at what is no more than a pretty poor shake out. Why is there so much poor bolting in this country?? It really needs a proper finish adding to it. It's possible to finish up Myra Hindley assuming no one else is on it, which they were today so I finished at this rather illogical and unsatisfying belay.

Midge problems and a damp crux. Coming together again and feeling easier than last season.

Coming together ok, the mid section from the tat to the last bolt seems to be my main problem.

Really good moves all the way, should have done quicker but got cocky and did lots of excessively hard sequences, soft.

Should have been the 7c extension but I got wrong handed on the last move. Not bad for a very quick redpoint after warming up top-roping it. Didn't help by ripping half a nail off during the warm-up.
