After taking the lob with my feet on the ledge yesterday I came back victorious. Sizeable only just touches on the distance travelled...

Note to self, wait for the shade. Great route, as good as New Dawn.

First 7c+ in a day! Did on my 4th tie-on, but could've consolidated two cocked-up goes (beta issues and foot slip) into one easy repayment. Really nice climbing, with a Euro-tastic middle section through the bulges. Felt like bottom-end 7c+.

First proper redpoint of the year after a bunch of sessions on it last year, really glad to get it done early in the season. Shaking like a leaf at the belay though, so close to dropping it!
