Incredible climbing! Technical and fingerry... got it 2nd go after I worked the crux sequence - important to get your hand sequence right at the top! Made my trip.

andyman666999 06/Jul/13 Lead β

Off balance 3rd clip with some nice fingery sequence to the end. Would have probably fluffed the flash if Pete hadn't worked the sequence first. Lovely climbing.

Two attempts - first one must have fallen or rested total of ten times. Second attempt: only one fall and then finished!! Will have to get clean next time. Great route. Possibly better footwork/more thought about balance for the crux move?
