Gutted i dropped it on the 2nd to last clip, that would have been a great onsight.
samparsons - Lead dog - 08/Sep/15

Placing the qd's on the way and was going well for the onsight until I hit the overhang. Once I'd worked through that I fell at the balancy bit above! Again it's worth revisiting to get clean...

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.

All these routes were climbed between 15th-22nd June 2012. Fantastic climb. Should have onsighted it, but fell halfway up trying to climb out of the roof, got my feet muddled and the wrong sequence.

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)
