Had tried many years back in the rain. My knee got eaten first go. Managed a slightly disorganised second go tick. Very good fun.

Third day and first this year. Much easier once I found a second knee bar.

2nd red-point. Got tied up like a pretzel at the 6th clip on my first red-point. Great route, well worth a play around on : )

Fell at the last difficult move, gutted. Definitively go back as it's an ace route

GOT IT! First 7b, and what a route. Impressive line, brilliant moves and a sense of urgency pulling around the roofs. Awesome.

3 goes. So close second try, two rests on the fifth bolt.

Felt tricky for 7b. Should have ticked it, but fucked up clipping after the crux and jumped. Trying in the sun probably didn't help.
