Anything above the old school start is really nice climbing. Didn't bother finishing direct.

Topped out too early - down climbed and finished properly, therefore can't take the clean onsight. Needed a clean on the higher holds, otherwise nice climbing which feels committing despite reasonable gear.

Went left at the top

Traversed out left before the top for a well-needed rest, couldn't get back on route after this so had to finish as for "Anchor Traverse"

Admirably lead by Dan, this one had some tricky sloping moves that probably wouldn't have felt so good if I'd not known I was on belay.

Good moves, but a bit too green and slopey to feel comfortable in today's heat
