jezb1 - Lead - 01/Apr/13

A very nice route. Very wet at the top so I resorted to pulling on the anchor to get it clipped, clean apart from this. The crux seemed very hard for 6a, but Steve and Emily did it very differently. Maybe I just made it hard for myself!

Had a shocking day climbing really. Kept falling at one place which i couldnt understand. was really struggling withj this mive. fell on the first go then yanked myself through it. then just could get passed that move for about another 5 goes. i was going to give up then had one last go and made it easy. was missing such an easy hold. i was also climbing rubbish and my head was not in the game at all. rubbish. pleased i got it at the end though.
