Second go. Good route

Had to rest on the rope after trying 3 times to clip my draw in the bolt on the brickwork. When I found the under cling I did it easily. This should have been a straight forward flashed climb

Short rest to sus out the rock over.

Cruised passed the crux expecting it to be at the top, but didn't find it there either. Felt very straightforward.

Very hard first section using undercuts. The bulge was simple if you can trust your left foot smearing.

couldn't find that 'peculiar hard move' through the bricks. Thought it was harder lower down.

Last route of the day and struggled to make the pull over the bulge (did feel very awkward). Will have to come back and have another go when fresher.

Very hard mid section! Easy finish when book said was tricky, thought that to be strange!!! Loved the fact i climbed a route going over the brick wall. really Fun, will do it again soon.

The rock was too slick for this today - my high smears on the layayway move just skidded off. Will return for this one
