Yet another good climb. Start on the right and traverse left under the roof to reach a jamming crack. Head straight up the wall until a move right becomes inevitable. © ROCKFAX

Climbed up and placed first bit of gear, got too pumped and had to be lowered back down. Got it clean second time round. Really good climb, very pumpy to get to flake, then all secure from then on. My hardest climb so far. Felt more like 5b to me.

Big reach lower down....harder than 5a i think. Got it 2nd attempt by the skin of my teeth.
