The roof direct into the finish of Monoculture.

Top-roped it twice but just so weak and sore today, felt useless!

Decided to give it all on a flash go with great beta from Tim, and fought really hard to flash it! "That was just like me."

Too tired to crank the roof at the end of the day!

First time on this. Suprisingly pumpy start. Hard to retrieve axe from under roof. Pulled a lump off above roof - no change there!

Pleased to do this clean. Good sequence moving left under the roof and then going through it. On the moves left I swung out footless onto a single axe on the flatty - that was fine as I got the swing under control and carried on but there must be a way of doing it with feet on. The crux section is pretty hard and the starting section to the roof is no pushover so I'd say M7+.

Good fun. Wasn't too hard, probably should have led it, but chickened out after feeling scared on the M5.

Hard! The start is no pushover but got to the roof in one go, then flailed and took a fair few goes to get to the good hook left of the bolt - then still hard till you get stood up! The trick for getting the good hook was getting a foot at an odd angle onto the rugosity below the good ledge for the axes. Felt like M7 or M7+ but I'd need to do it clean to be able to tell properly.

I placed the first two QDs on bottom-rope first (put by Dave), then pulled the rope and flashed. Being tired already, I thought I would come off a couple of times but somehow managed to stay on. Very pleased!!

Could not establish myself properly over the lip. Probably harder now as we dislodged the big flake

Struggled through the roof on red point then came off when holds ripped in the groove.

Good varied climb. Some butchness over the roof followed by some delicacy up the groove. The ukc voting thing won't let me register M7, which I think it is if And Pears is. Getting harder as the lower groove ( below monoculture junction ) sheds hooks.
