3rd go. Flailed on the flash - hard 2nd clip unless you know what you are doing. Then stupidly messed it up 1st RP by messing my feet up after the hard climbing. Felt pretty steady 2nd RP. Cool technical climbing but wish it were longer!

Nice climbing
Bennykr - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/13 with Dan Green

First 7a+. Dead chuffed. Wrote down the moves in my geeky book when I worked it and then went over moves with a cuppa before work in the morning. Not gone on it for couple of months, so really pleased to get on it and for it to go smoother than the handful of 7a's I've done to date. Will continue with geek method in future.

First 7a+ - worked the moves on a TR, and then fell on the last move pulling into the big undercut flake at the top on first RP. too tired on the second but went on the 3rd after working an easier sequence at the top

retro flashed this before working New Dawn twice. Then it got too cold to try a redpoint but was probably too tired to get it anyway. Oh, I also broke off some of the crimp you use to go out to the consenting jug. So it's slightly harder now. Maybe a diet is in order.....?
