Tried it on 3 or 4 other visits and seemed utterly desperate but felt steady and went no problem today

First time I've been on it with decent connies. Fine when it's not greasy. Obligatory wobblers all round topping out on green holds with a headtorch on.

Didn't really deserve this one. Was almost off it at least twice. An utter classic.

Pleased to flash. Pull on is the crux but isn't over till your at the top!

Initially felt impossible to pull off the deck, a few goes later I was pooing myself on the green topout. A Send between the showers. Excellent.

Couldn't really get sorted on this. Feels very hard!

World Class bit of climbing. Took a few attempts. Committing topout too :)
