Last climb of the day, but got all moves done. Chuffed.
Daniel - Lead dnf - 22/Feb/14 with Matt Tomlinson

put clips in, and then had a go after but was too cold. go to above the flake again but fell by the next clip. should be fine on a warmer day.
Ed Booth - Lead dog - 27/Dec/13 with Angus Kille, Adam Booth

Didn't feel too bad except for the sea grease, the high winds, and the nearly sub zero temps! Will try again if I ever get back there.
Adam Booth - TR dog - 27/Dec/13 with Angus Kille, Ed Booth

Tricky last two clips - had a few RP goes, close - no biscuit.

Very very hard posun

Really great sustained climbing. 2nd go. Gutted to drop the on-sight on the final few moves.

hmmm ... a bit better than last time. I managed to link through the first 3 bolts and consistently do the long move onto the final head wall. Fingers were trashed by the third go!

Longest running project! By far the hardest thing i'd ever been on when i first tried it (Autumn 09), had a few days on it every season, it put up a fight to the end but every go still a joy to climb. Good times. Bit sad to tick it.

Cracking route, somehow managed to tick it in 3 goes, a quality stamina test that is getting a bit polished now.
