Pleased to get this, 4th RP? Up to the third clip was really dusty but the rest was quality. Absolutely loving the gaston rock-over post crux. Great route.

On a roll at this point, found it harder than Is Vic There but good shakeouts throughout. Top rockover off the gaston hard work for the short. Top dirty which is a shame.

Not a good attempt as came off before second bolt. Bottom is currently very dusty and dirty - needs a bit of traffic. In the end decided to bail after the second bolt.

First route of the day...warmed-up bolt to bolt then sent it... GREAT climbing and really varied. For me, the crux was stamina and controlling pump...with the bottom 3 clips getting me the most. There are some great rests throughout the route though...really lovely climbing from going left over the bulge...brilliant!

Had 4 progressively worse RP attempts on the Sat but never got further than mucking up the move around the arete after 6th bolt due to overpump. A frustrating tick-free day. Could do all the moves in my sleep, went back and cruised it first RP on the Sunday after a decent warmup with much relief.

DrGav - TR dog - 11/Apr/09 with Wendy

Quite sustained throughout with no one stoper move. Agree with comment below regarding conflicting bolts in the top 1/3rd. Stick slightly to the left which uses the same type of bolt. (the right hand line looks insanely hard)
