Hmmm didn't quite have the knack or the skin for this one. Even if I'd got to the end it was wet.

Soaking wet, but felt ambitious. Possibly in the dry.

3rd go. Just refused to let go. Great line but should've checked the top out first - well sketch!

Pleased to get this one. Bit of a battle, started footless into foot cam rather then using block behind, slightly harder but felt it climbed better without. Really good problem.

Tried yesterday but ran out of light. It was a bit greasy today but managed it. It feels much higher than it is as you spend a lot of your time on it almost horizontal - it was nice to have a couple of jugs to aim for at the top of the arete. A really good sequence of moves.
