I'm on Tremolo as well at the mo, and I'm pretty sure Tremolo will go with fewer attempts than this did! Feels a lot harder than eg Seventh Aardvark, Personal Services.

Tried to top rope this as training at end of day. Got through crux but forgot to unclip and was then too juiced to reverse so jumped of. Started from begining of crux again and did to top.

Some wet holds on a cold day. Totally numb fingers at the top. Good route - much better than it looks from the ground.

Nice route, fairly reachy. Flashed all the climbing but fell as a foot popped clipping the last bolt (having climbed past the best position to do so...) Quite nasty sideways, rope burning fall. Did it next go.
