Good to get on this, got all the moves to the junction with Slab, no stoppers but none less than V4 either. Will take a fair bit of work.

4th session, an object lesson in the benefit of decent conditions.
thebigfriendlymoose - Lead RP - 11/Jun/14 with Stephen

Think the crux moves would be doable but good side pull too far to be useful. Need to go away and work on lock strength for starting sequence

linked the bottom to the crux. Ready for redpoint! Weather then crapped out and route got wet so I guess I'll have to wait 'til next time I am down.

Day 1 to learn the moves again. Went from crux to top.

I found this hard. Happy to do it.

Should have been second go, ended up being fifth try today! The beta turned out to be skipping the third clip.

Make sure you know what your doing on the 7b+ finish, as it's no push over. Video on YouTube.

Went direct, didn't use side pulls out right. (Not cos of "ethics" just thought it was easier that way)
