Not going well and found this a bit grim. Slimy, run out and inobvious, gear ok but hard to get it all in (4 bits) when you've had a hard week! Great route though.

Awsome climbing on awesome gear. Nice small run out at the too

Took a massive fall on this just through the crux. Latched onto a wet hold and hand popped off. First nut ripped to leave me 15ft below the high point... Got it second go, found it very strenuous and slippery

On Tony's gear.

On Tony's gear. Would be much more pumpy placing my own, but a few sneaky rests make it reasonable

Good, pumpy, needs plenty of thought to save energy. Gear great but when arms are flagging....

Polished start then quite nice. No crux as such, but quite a few moves in a row.

Fell off about 2/3 height, foot popped, very pumpy, must get stronger!!!

Couldn't look up because the rain was so heavy it was blinding me. Chalk turned into slippy paste.

Did this route again in the dry, and managed 2/3 of it without falling, inc. the 5c? move at the bottom. Quite pleased with that.
