Last route of the day, having done Jaz and WG earlier. Fine to the roof (discounting a comedy slip about three moves off the ground when some dirt crumbled). Couldn't remember how to do the roof so had to hang around to figure it out. Two stein pulls (clip off the second one), tenuous hook up right (left of the bolt), dodgy hook up left at the top of the crack, then a flattie, don't blow it from there! Felt quite hard, in fact harder than anything on Jaz or WG but probably because I had to hang around. The rest is easier but still no pushover - M7+ I reckon. Headwall was fine - hooks are small it good enough. Pleased to get this clean after doing a couple of the big routes but wasn't that tired.

Thought I might retro flash this. I thought wrong! Fine to the roof but then well hard! Went off a creaky stein pull to hook something round the top, then good crimpy holds, right knee on, good hooks, phew! Top section took a while to figure out but was fine. So just need to sort out going through the roof in one.

Pulled a load of loose blocks off under the roof and may still be unstable, (the route, not me)

Got over roof with a struggle but fell off having got the draw in the clip over the roof. too tired second time to get clip - off again! Tough route .

Tried this as the warm up on the first day of the White Goods Gathering as the real warm up routes were quite busy. Big mistake! Even getting to the roof is hard work. Eventually the roof succumbed to a stein pull but other people did it differently (and more easily?). Kept falling off the tenuous last few moves below the lower off but got it eventually. Had two goes overall and also tried it at the end of the Sunday but floundered at the roof. Needs more work and a proper warm up!
