Smooth once I sorted the post crux sequence, felt bold with the lonely 3rd bolt

First RP after putting putting draws in and working moves to warm up, fun route with cool pop move to get on to ledges at top.

After a couple of goes to get the draws in it went clean this evening. Vicious and worth while route. Thanks Darren for the belay! Overall 2 sessions and 4 tries, so redpoint on my fith attempt. Stoked.

A cool route with a spicy crux, I like it. It was hard to fine the corect sequence after I had one go on lead and two on top rope I unlocked it. Redpoint it next time.

2nd go. Not as hard as little white lie and not as good.

Brian H 16/Apr Lead

Bit surprised to flash this today after backing off some years ago (and after top roping about 20 years ago). Probably safe but the clips are spacey.

Really good sequence, hard climbing only short but worthwhile!

Easier than Little White Lie in my opinion. A go to work out the moves then 1st RP. Moves after 3rd clip are excellent.

A little close to wages. But a good line and cool moves through the lip. Took a few goes.

Maybe went a little to far left on the on-sight but re-climbed it direct and didn't feel harder so taking the tick.

30% finding a sequence, 70% getting sure you're not going to fluff the 3rd clip...
