philhilo - Lead O/S - 09/Jul/12 with Helen E

I'm good at climbing cracks and finger / hand jamming (both of which can be utilized here) and this one felt F6a to me. The pollish on this route is certainly making it harder for the fingers and feet. The second bolt is slightly too high meaning it had to be clipped from a very uncomfortable position. With the pollish only a 1 star route now!

Got onto the start of the crack but very nervous as leading. Like to try on a top rope. Feet difficult and painfull as wedged in crack.

Katie and Alex hated it, I loved it! A bit sweaty to be finger locking but was good, pretty pumpy for a 5 though! By the time you get to the top! Actually found the hardest moves the top of the crack when your reaching for other holds.
