Fecking awkward start for me, but once balance is sorted very enjoyable! Not quite strong enough to lead just yet. Will return.

Couldn't make headway even on top-rope. No strength left at end of day and small holds felt too greasy. Pfft.

The rib at the top felt slightly awkward, but maybe I missed something.

Another really good route. Quite fingery at the bottom for a 6a. I went the wrong way at the top by mistake - up the short groove instead of over the roof. Was in the zone! EA.

Classic route. Beautiful sequence through the crimps, then flow bulges, flow slab, tufa pipes and wonderful arm-jam-cum-rockover. All for 6a. Superb.
