Put the clips in and got spooked trying to clip the insitu draw (just out of reach so grabbed it). Sent next go, think I could have flashed, but what a route, great to climb it twice! Also had a play on Space Race on TR a couple of times - hard!

This intimidating line has long been on my hit list and finally, after running out of excuses to avoid it, I got on it and did all the moves in the baking heat of the day. Will return for a redpoint attempt when conditions are a little better. A brilliant route fully deserving of its 3 star status.
