poeter210 - 2nd dog - 26/Sep/15 with adrian voss
Brilliant route despite coming onto the rope more times than I care to admit when I thought it would go on the flash. Much harder than it looks but well protected. Getting off the ground has hard technical moves before getting gear in. Possible to pre-place a wire by traversing in from the left. Good jamming essential. Will come for a clean lead again.

Tape gloves really helped. Magnificent route. Possibly one of my best climbing experiences. Had to pull hard. Got wrong handed traversing on thin hands. Recovered. Slab was exciting and finish up wide crack was great fun. Made falling off all the thrutchy VS's seem worth it. Belayed watching a glorious sun set while swallows played and falcon(?) hunted. Best line i've climbed on grit. Mel didnt have as much fun.
