1st 7b onsight! Pulled a big loose block off just above the anchor. Still a lot of loose debree.

The direct way through the roof is way better than faffing around on the right. Really enjoyable headwall! Came close to getting it first time today, but fumbled the first clip in the crux section.

2 RP. Ok lower part, rest, cruxy upper part. Very nice but short ish section. climbed straight up in the lien of bolts. Could do right hand side, but seemed like cheating.

with Lewis

Putting the draws in/unlocking the sequence felt hard. Second go much better but fell at the end of the upper crux. Next time.

On the second go up felt myself getting back into climbing on rock. A good effort, ultimately unsuccessful but might have got it if I'd had my beta sorted out for the headwall. Totally out of power for a third attempt.
