Dogged to 5th bolt. Top roped twice after, got somewhere near having all the moves done, last move out of groove to left needs refining. F##k my fingers are sore!!

Quite a few days over 6 years. Such a good route, and a very satisfying tick - I really had to throw one on for the top of the crag.

Tried to onsight and then one red point attempt before it got too greasy to climb.

Amazing route. Watched a bunch of other people on it while working illusions. Super psyked to get the flash. I'd say the grade is correct.

Lead to about two thirds height, but couldn't link together through upper crux sequence. Good, but a little greasy.

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.

Adam Booth 27/Dec/13 TR dog

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.

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

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!

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