Second go. Gutted not to onsight it. On onsight attempt, got high after doing all the tricky moves but got pumped out trying to clip after following some misleading chalked (poor) holds. Awesome route.DJ Nelson - Lead RP - 15/Sep/14 with Micaela Langellotti

Frustrating, fell off due to z clipping for the first time ever halfway through the crux rockover. Spent ages faffing at the top trying to work out how to use the terrible mono pockets, turns out there's a much simpler sequence to the right...

A couple more attempts at this route today. Nearly. Mid section has a deceptively tricky sequence.
Sorry to admit I broke a small foothold (and 2 brick sized blocks from underneath it!) off the crux 02/03/08, making the sequence harder - though still not more than english 6a. Changed the grade? Perhaps..
