Second go. Onsight attempt was a protracted affair. I was silly enough to finish up the 6b, then had to downclimb it, unclipping as I went, to get back on the line, only to follow chalk off to the right of the undercling and run out of holds. Muppet. If I had any route finding skills (see bolts, follow bolts..) it would probably have gone onsight. Felt pretty soft for the grade.

katiep - TR dog - 21/Mar/10 with Jacob Lloyd

realy cool and slightly to easy for the grade i think but good climbing on it just walked up to it with no beta at all and sent it but needs another bolt at the top

grabbed the quick draw on the undercuts like a big pussy, then got through the thin, delicate crux without too much grief on first attempt. then took some falls, then sent it.
