Only to check moves for future; felt really hard compared to the other 2 7a+ I did the same day; but not sure how much I can attribute to the fact my skin was in pieces by then

drysori - Lead - 23/Jul/12 with Dunc

Quick go figuring out some new beta for the move to the crack. Linked it from the undercuts lower down to the top. Wet holds didn't help. Had one redpoint but I was too tired by then.

marky - Lead O/S - 01/Jun/12 with Sharon

Third session, three redpoints, boiling hot again. A new high point. Got through the crux on all three attempt's. Fell twice pulling through into the jug next to the crack and a foot slip once cost me the route! It'll go but definitely need more endurance, the moves on there own I'm finding easy.
Luke Owens - Lead dog - 26/May/12 with Ryan "Spidey" Mcconnell, Luke Clarke

Second session. 4 redpoint attempts. Fell latching the jugs near the 4th clip. Climbed overlapped clean twice.

high quality; quite how the guide describes Climb High as the "undeniable classic of the crag" i dont know. this, Walking with Barrence, I Punched Judy First and The Bandits not to mention Fire and Ice are all better sport routes
