Rockfax Description
An intense piece of wall work. Climb to a good small ledge and then make some technical reaches up a thin crack to gain better holds and an easier final few metres. © Rockfax

Back 8 days later for the red point. Still found it hard, could have easily dropped the crimpy layaway moves at the top.

Almost did it in good style, dropped the last move high up, got straight back on and did it without resting. End of the day so proper red-point will have to wait. Lower boulder problem was hard, then crimpy layaways with high right leg rockover up top

Climbed the 6c next door, traversed across the top, lowered down and pre-placed the fourth draw, since I'm too short to place it from stood on the ledge. Got the route first time tonight.

The bolting on this isn't very kind to short people! Took a big whip trying for the onsight because I was a couple of inches short of being able to put a quickdraw in the bolt by the crux from a comfortable ledge. Went back up after Josh put the draws in and finished it off, but not without falling off again and stopping for a rest. Strenuous but really good - one to come back for (with a partner taller than me!)

Last route of the day. Couldnt pull upper crack moves.

Dogged to get clips in then made 2 redpoint attempts and fell both times on the reach move. More power endurance required!

Really good route. Worthwhile putting a long quickdraw in the 4th bolt with the clipstick, wouldn't fancy that clip from the crappy sidepull higher up.

Thought this was very average. Only like 8m of quality climbing the rest is crap. I would only give it 1*

Great technical moves up the face and crack. Should have tried again for the RP.

For some reason this felt worse than nearly a year ago. Thin skin and sweaty conditions, gave up after one redpoint. Still psyched to get on it again though, awesome moves.

We all did a bit of work on this and then all led it. Nigel went first. Super route.
