Too hot and struggling on crux clip. Think it needs either to be skipped or to clip from higher up. Still a brill day actually being nice and warm for once and with a cheeky ice cream on the way home!

Inspired by Duncan I got back on this. Everything feels less hard than before, the bulge still feels nails but at least I have a sequence. Happy with rest of the route. Good link from top of direct start to throwing for second campus rail on the bulge tonight, really keen for it. Direct nearly dry but seepage probably due tomorrow from recent rain. hmm

Had an exploratory red point. Fell moving right between top bulges, felt tired after yesterday, this thing should go!

Think I'm ready for an exploratory red point now. Whippers ahoy!

Cheeky pre-work hit. Got all the moves done, just need to refine the beta and then I can start going for it!! First time I've been inspired by the tor.

Got through the rock over then dogged to top, need to revisit. Amazing route.

Brilliant route.

GuyVG 02/Aug/14 Lead dog

Just fantastic, going to take a bit of work. All moves done apart from the crux bulge so still a way to go. Needs to be cooler. Never been this inspired by a sport route.

Just having a look. Didn't do hard move low down, nor the rockover, ok to the break. Nails hard move above.

Lots and lots of beta, primarily watching Zippy top rope it (easily) 2 seconds before my ascent. Move after the rockover on bottom wall the crux, hangign out for bloody ages at the break the key.

Second session, second red point attempt - fought to the very last move and then fluffed it, making a stupid mistake but excellent fun, can't wait to finish.
