Senility** HVS 5b
[Senility, 3 kb]Pumpy climbing up the leaning wall right of the corner. Generally the holds are good, but they are well spaced and the angle dictates that a forceful approach is needed. © ROCKFAX

Thought this was pretty hard, really pumpy

Wrestled with a stuck cam near the top. Spent so long on it I got seriously pumped and had to take a breather, which was fortunate because two hands were needed!

Stupidly pumpy but great powerful moves. Got to about half way point before rest, need to be fitter and move much faster to make it up ground this steep and sustained. Will be back!

Dogged! Well gutted. A lovely thuggish climb with brilliant gear and only one 5b move. Fell from inches below the incut edge of the rabbit ledge after foolishly trying to force a rest at the final break.

I got pumped very quickly, and took rests on bottom section. Very poor performance. I lead the top chimney which is great fun.
bigglesbutcha - AltLd dog - 03/Jun/10 with Steve

Weighted the rope at the crux. Could have done it too when I finally committed. Curse that doubt!

Jugs most of the way - Chris motored up before bottling the last move, running out of steam & slumping. Should lead it myself next time...
