Felt tense and nervous starting this and despite the route not being particularly hard i inevitably got mind-blowingly pumped. So pumped I was unable to move up or down mid crux, stuck on a rubbish slopey pinch, and had to battle the increasingly limp hands and the lactic blinkers just to stay attached for about 10 minutes before autopilot eventually got me to the jugs 1 move away. Cool route and feel satisfied to not given up.

Nice climbing. Felt easier than Bran Flake.

Perhaps a lack of decent warm up or feeling tired but I was almost off the top of this. Very tricky pulling over the lip. Smallcams useful at the top.

Hard start, then strenuous finish surmounting the final part of the upper crack.

Good route, fiddly gear, eventually succumbed right at the end owing to all the holds being soaking wet. Will return on a dry day!
