Couldn't let myself fall off this time! Ironically it was really cold!

Pumped out trying the start too many times in the short window before the sun set! Should go next time! Found it a million times easier than last time!

Finally went the right way at the top on my last attempt! Got all the moves, just need to link them now... Super strenuous!!

First 7a lead. Dogged it on top rope last year when I was green but went back this year for the lead and got it second go. Well pleased.

Fell in a stupid place on the flash, decent route, poor rock in throughout.

First go after a session of working moves. Decent holds all the way, just a poweful start and then pumpy if you don't jam yourself into the grovve on the right hand side which seems like cheating! Fun route.

worked the route x 4. Initial crux move made even more harder due to wrist injury requiring a strange over hand undercut. Top section no problems.

Was going to go for redpoint until I realised my sequence at the top doesn't involve clipping the last draw... Spent time trying to figure it out. Next time for sure!

Pumpy as a warm up, but glad to do it. Never really flows, just feels off balance, but cool little route.
