just too weak to pull through the bulge
hard climb with very commiting moves with no feet! one of my favorite climbs of the trip
Bowline Climbing Club
Finally worked out the crux this time, after a few falls. Will attempt it again in November.

not great conditions, the first part of the crack was pretty greasy. Definite crux section, the rest is pretty simple bit fun!

Painful jams above the roof

Didn't have enough strength for the overhanging flake/crack move.

Did as warm down climb and just didn't have enough to pull through the bulge.

One fall, warm-up fluke. Then did it clean from the ledge, but no ground-up.
got a bit stuck on the overhang entering the crack, eventually did a big layback

one too many flapjacks!
Well chuffed to get the on sight of this on a cold morning! A real fight to get over the bulge.
Wish I'd lead it, hardest part was unclipping just above the roof:-(
Very wet :( although can't blame that for coming off it unfortunately, just wimped out a bit pulling through the overhang.

Climbing with taz n becky wills. 1st attempt with andy in the wet winter before
Joe Day, Rosea Day
Took four attempts, but a change of feet position finally gave me the extra high to reach the better hand holds. Still feels hard for the grade.
After several attempts falling off poor finger jams I realised that's not the approacth to take :-)
The crack is slippery and I just can't reach the more positive bit. Finally worked out that a hand jam will work, but was too spent to get it clean. New project. Feels very hard for the grade.

One move wonder but quite a tough move.

|Brian H||11/Mar/12||Lead rpt|
the whole route was soaked with condensation! Made it a toughie over the bulge
Warm up..Or not!
cruxy. too much of a one move wonder want to try it again clean
Completely destroyed me for the rest of the day! I thought it was going to be a gentle 6a/+ warm-up.. but found it very tough. Didn't help that I went right under the roof to start with (distracted by chalky looking slots).

Very stiff, probably f6b+.

Crikey Moses! This was bledy 'ard - really battled with the pull over the overhang and it didn't seem to relent for a while there after! The climbing above the overhang is schweet...
Another CC sandbag.
|Jonathan Emett||07/May/11||Lead dnf||
I'm beginning to think I will never nail this one.

CC said F6a+. main crack super hard
|Jonathan Emett||05/Sep/10||Lead dnf|
|Jonathan Emett||24/Aug/10||Lead dnf|
It's all about one move, but it's a toughie. Would have been a good trad tick.
Bad burly warm up.
Early morning onsight, very cold. Thinking it was the 6a.. Nvm.
|Ed Babs||02/Jan/10||Lead RP||
a bit tired cant wait to try again fresh. a fantastic climb . portland guide book gives it 6a+
Plan to get this on lead on my next trip. The crux can be really hard and butch or get your feet high for a funky lay-back.

Had to have a few goes at the crux through the overhang.
Hard head wall but very fun route after that!
random canadian chris
took a bit of a lob trying the crux minus the crux bolt(didn't hit the ledge, just.) had a rethink, clipped the bolt strenuosly mid move and powered to glory. grand stuff.
|Morgan Woods||22/Mar/08||Lead RP||
Nice to tidy this one off after falling of it a few years back.
Rich White, Harry Massey
Tired, end of day, got feet wrong, gutted.

Butch climbing past the bulge and a fine jamming finish
We thought it was a new route and called it Pullman, but we'd been beaten to it!
