Although I'd seen someone on the route the day before I didn't really study the moves. The route feels a lot longer than 20m. There are rests but I didn't seem to have the energy to use them! Brilliant route.

Where do I start. An experience to remember! Climbed 1.5 times, dogged my way up bolt to bolt, didn't find any moves particularly hard but the last clip is very awkward. Need the stamina of 1,000 stallions to climb this clean. Will probably come back before the holiday is over. Had to climb again on top rope to recover the draws. Finished on the route about 8.30 and walked back down in the pitch black, epic adventure!

Accidental redpoint! Done over two days. Friday - one bolt-to-bolt pass and one on TR. Sunday - bolt-to-bolt warm up, then went for the lead to link sections - led as far as the first rest, and just felt really good about it, so went for the top half. Very pleased to pull it off :-) Pumpy as f*ck. Seconded by Nick Smith (with no warm up, after claiming to not be very fit at the moment!)
