I found this really hard. After downclimbing to the ground from below the crux a few times I went for it, falling on a cam in the crack above the ledge. From the ground I was too pumped after the crux and ended up resting on gear several times on the top wall. Never ending and very sustained climbing!

Fell off the crux twice previously so stoked to make it today. On/off moment slapping for the break, but enough jugs above to recover. Lovely climbing.

Really pumpy. Glad Ross got the lead on this one - not sure I would have had the stamina to pull through placing gear. As good as its reputation, and not over til the end.

Let down on 1st go by tactical errors and low faith in probably-ok gear. Pulled the ropes to get clean second go. Hard E4.

She truly had her way with me! Got up to the sandy half-way break and a hold broke off (fall 1). Came to the deck, then 2nd go got matched on the big brown jug just right of the tat when that beast broke off aswell (fall 2). Wasnt sure of the line, so tried goin out left on some quartz crimps, ended up on some sandy slopers, which resulted in fall 3 and the end of my endevours. Oh dear.

Had followed Derek on this 18+ years ago and some gear of Ed's was in place from his go. May have gone too high before stepping left.
