Will have to come back for the redpoint

Last climb of the day. Fell about half a dozen times through the crux sequence. Crux bolts hard to clip. May go as a redpoint with a bit more traning.

Funny bolting at the crux makes it hard to onsight.

haard to onsight! Took ages to find the sequence, but then the crux is short though distinct. Enjoyable. Got soaked by big waves, so didn't go for the rp today.
jacobjlloyd - 2nd dog - 15/Nov/09 with Ivan, John Scarrott

great climb with a really distinct crux - I haven't figured out the sequence through the crux yet - one to come back to
