Roof climbing from the start by way of fig 4's and lock offs. Start is located on left side of cave following crack line upto first lip, then moving up into stein pull. Crux is located at overlap between first and second roof sections. Finish at chain lower-off.

Only to the 5th clip, heal hooking axes no crampons

Sort of a warm up for Substantial Losses. Had a rest on the move across - the usual difficulty in extracting the left axe whilst having off a 9 on the right. Then carried on to the end, almost slipped off taking out the stein (careless) but held it. Not that hard with a rest but certainly got me warm!

Yes! First go the flow through the roof was disrupted by the rope catching on the crampons whilst in a fig 4 and wasn't fully warmed up anyway so had a rest before the span out right, then in one go to the end. Second go did it! The hardest for me is still controlling the swing and hanging on after doing the span out right and taking out the left axe. The rest is just a case of hanging on an milking the non-rests. Now the for next project...

Two goes, getting there - down to one rest.

First time on this, two goes. First go got to the end of the initial roof clean, bolt to bolt after that. Hard sequence going right and up to the stein pull, the rest is stamina but on the whole nothing I can't do, so should be just a matter of time. Second go top roped by headtorch, again had a few rests. Unclipping was harder than clipping on lead!

Finally got this, always tricky getting the stein over the lip, but lovely route all in all.

did it again yesterday for training and to do marginal gains. Much better route now without the bolt on holds at the start. Soft for M10
