Would have flashed but didn't take a chalk bag so jumped off. 2nd go. Best boulder i've done in ages, balancy, delicate and slightly highball with 2 pads. Psyched! 3*+

2nd go. Great moves up a slightly highball wall, one of my favorite climbs i've done on grit!

Quality line, glad I don't have to bone down on that pebble and sprag again though.

Didn't expect to do this! Just had psyche left over after Cave Prob and decided to have a go, used high feet not big low one. Only just reached crack and jug, and couldn't jam the crack as it was too wide! 7A ***

Exquisite sequence. Spicy, balancey joy. Soft 7a I reckon. It's only my second so 7a+ seems unlikely.

Should have flashed but missed the low step left stupidly. Got back on and straight up. What a great problem. Barely 7A.

Very cool once I sussed the beta, moves after the crux a bit scary due to being early in the season and obscenely green up there.
