Managed to stick the crux all the way from the start but fell off the easier moves above. Getting closer

2nd go, should have flashed it!

Took a few tries. The crucial undercut was wet but I think main issue was just getting back into dinbren style - its all about where you put your feet!

tricky (on 1st acquaintance) crux but good climbing
ksjs - Lead dog - 24/Aug/08 with goosebump

felt straightforward but crux does require some strength. another good Dinbren route
ksjs - Lead RP - 24/Aug/08 with goosebump

This is what climbing as Dinbren is about, steep and overhanging
matt30987 - Lead RP - Oct/07 with Dad
