2nd RP. Skipped the crimp by the crux bolt and all underlings. Went out left to a left hand crimp and did the span from there. Decent route but only a single move St the 7b range.

Pulled off the crimp rail at the final bolt. The route is a touch harder now. Still an awesome route!

Couldn't stick the reachy crimp. Short rest after the fall then cleaned it.

Tricky crux. Going to take some working out.
Monkey_Alan - TR dog - 21/May/13 with Anita Christensen

In line with Leftee's warning... pulled out a torso-sized block leaving a triangular scar about half the size behind. Luckily I was on top rope. Could've been worse if I was leading it. Fortunately nobody was stood directly beneath. No change in difficulty.
Sami Mandeel - 2nd dog - 19/Apr/13 with el_monty

1st redpoint today after a previous day a few years ago. Just about made the span after using the intermediate.

Word of warning. Had a go on this last weekend. There's a tooth shaped block at the top of the layback crack. Grabbed it as an undercut and not sure if it actually shifted but a whole load of sand and crap fell out the bottom. Sounds pretty hollow so would be wary of it.

Got through the crux move once. Ran out of skin trying. Hopefully it'll go next time.
Sami Mandeel - TR dog - 27/May/11 with Sam Ferguson, el_monty

Hard to read crux and very height dependent. Could just about do the move. Next time!

Linc - Lead dog - 27/May/11

hauled through crux, silly hard.
Ducks Rock - TR - 27/May/11 with Fox

Shunted. Didn't manage the reachy move.
Paul Robertson - TR dog - 22/Apr/11

MontyH - TR - 19/Mar/11 with Brian

brian watson - TR dnf - 19/Mar/11

2nd go after Lewis worked out the move. Not hard enough for me for 7b but would be absolutely nails for anyone shorter (I'm a tall 5'11). Couldn't see any other way to do the move

westyb3 - Lead O/S - 05/Apr/10 with Alan Sarhan

Fell off at the long reach. Will get clean next time! Get left foot higher than the big hold before the long reach.
