Beautiful day in Staffs

Recorded for posterity. Total of 3 sessions working it, falling off at the end 4 times, best go today just failing to reach the flake from the poor sloper by maybe an inch. Got it totally wired and definitely capable but should climb something else for a change! Aim to come back and crush in autumn when the ground is a bit less boggy?

Worked all the moves except the crux. Was getting there on the crux when my skin finally gave way.

A good steal from an otherwise soggy crag.

Perfect problem, sequency and then a bit powerful. Two short sessions, worked the drop-down move and then JUST KNEW I was going to send it next go. First 7A+

Great moves on holds that stay dry in rain. Also very good in reverse.
