Wish I hadn't tried this before when it was wet/damp. Might have onsighted it!

Almost did in a session but let go at the chains last week. One of the best routes I've done at Malham for sure.

So psyched to flash this, was knackered setting out and got pumped out of my mind! Awesome route.

Cool! Tried this briefly last year on top rope after doing Yosemite wall and found it hard. Went 3rd go/2nd RP today, forgot lower wall sequence on 1st RP. Didn't find it too bad on the send and didn't get too pumped! Well happy. Middle of the grade?

Put the clips in, then did it next go. Wasn't without it's moments...

for some reason this felt easy today, even though i messed up the sequence. maybe 5 days rest had something to do with it...

nearly flashed this, but rope jammed between quickdraw and rock moving right and over the small roof after the kneebar, broke my heart. Extended that draw and got it after trying it again to remember the sequence

In a day: on 2nd RP after 3TRs. Sustained fingery climbing from 3rd bolt (NB extend it) to first roof. Not all over after that - keeps on coming.

Sooo pumped at top. Might have gone a bit too far right at top into tremelo. Clipped top bolt on tremelo giving massive rope drap. Real fight to clip the belay
