Great Climb tough on the fingers

Crux felt harder than Mr Choo Choo but could be condition dependant. Great route.

Not strong enough to get into the crux slot. Did it fine after sitting on the rope. good climbing.

Have worked out a new sequence for crux section. Was then too tired to pull it off clean. Should go next time.

Flashed on TR, TRed again, went for the lead and had to rest on the crux. Had another go, slipped off and was too pumped to get back on again.

Could do all the moves except the really difficult one past the 3rd bolt which I didn't manage perfectly. Hard work and beyond my level at the moment! Still, got to the top with some rests!
