Woooohooooo! So psyched to finally get on this after a few false starts. 2nd "proper go" after dropping the top crux first time round. Scary S3 middle section tamed a little by Gav's beta.

2 attempts, fell from the top on my best go.

Happy to flash this. Team psych was so high with such a strong team. 8 ascents in under an hour, many of them flashes. Big holds all the way tot he last move then a stern pull to finish.
Cailean Harker - Solo β - 01/Jun/13

Totally amazing, fell off the last move 2 years ago, smashed it in first try this time with amazing strong team psyche! Waddage!

Phew. Took 6 falls getting to and from the crux - no chalked holds whatsoever made this an entertaining, somewhat draining series of attempts. Absolutely amazing climbing. Will be back.
