Put the clips in for Dougie. Felt much easier when I knew what was coming!

1st go - got to the low crux and hung, and then again at the top bulge.
2nd go - Climbed well but then on very last move I snagged my thumb through the draw as I threw up to the jug, got tangled and ended up just holding the draw. Grrrr. Hard route made harder because I can't use any of the holds in the crack at the top because of my banana fingers. It felt to me like a sustained and solid 7b.

The move off the floor was tricky and got very pumped. Made it to the fourth bolt before coming off. Got back on and got to the top clean. Worked the move I fell off and then got it clean first red point attempt. Felt really hard to try and onsight but once I knew what was coming it suited me as it's very sustained rather than bouldery. I took wires and could be used if really wanted but I didn't use them. Bolts are a bit more spaced further up but certainly not dangerous. 7b to onsight.

Hard 7b imo. As hard as HS but more sustained, although initial crux move is probably harder than anything on HS. Tried a fortnight ago but dropped it at 3rd bolt after getting pumped on the slopers in bad conditions, G-up. Got really pumped in technical, top groove, got the top draw in, but had to push past it as was so pumped even on big jug.

Very good indeed! Felt as hard as H Sign and bit spooky in upper half, big section of rock at half height that is hollow and being on a wire didn't help. Weird that this is so different in character from H Sign yet only a few metres right. Definitely not E5, easily done at 7a+/7b without wires (though worth taking them). I struggled briefly with tufa during onsight and fell then had a few gos to get something workable to get established in the upper groove. Done next go, tired arms at the end :)

Soft 7b and a good contrast to Hidden Sign.
