One of the hardest routes in Clwyd. Harder since the loss of a hold at the start and probably better, 8a+ or maybe just about 8b??

The siege has ended; even today the top crimp was damp and needed brushing 5min before the successful redpoint. 8RP's in total split over 4 sessions and 2 further sessions to work it all out.
Ally Smith - Lead RP - 20/Aug/13 with Clarkey, Owens, Spidey & Matty

Wet hold = fail, but got new minor beta tweak in using smaller but more positive LH crimp instead of ripple and then rocking onto top of chalked pinch to get the jug
Ally Smith - Lead dog - 16/Aug/13 with Doylo

1 dogging go & 2 redpoints, both falling at the (damp) crimpy flake. Last fall was nasty and bashed heel. It's on!
