madtoclimb - Lead dog - 31/Aug/14

bit of a paddy crux missed the crimp by the bolt made clipping abit spicy 1st section ruins it. start up witherslack - surely 3 stars that way, cross over from the undercut flake to the bolt below the tufa

Did the alternative start up Witherslack Alice, very loose, not worth two stars

Tried to climb too direct at top, need to go slightly leftward below the bulge. Got it second time. One to lead next time.

Need to practise the moves off the ground but after that just felt lovely steady wall climbing.
Lessworkmoreclimbing - 2nd O/S - 12/Jun/13 with Kev

Thought-provoking crux but otherwise fairly average.

Good route (probably better if you start up Witherslack Alice), pretty wet, but enjoyed the climbing. Easy at the grade.
