So tried this route having already been 3 days on. Felt good going bolt to bolt, especially on the top section near pockets. What a route! Definitely come back and do it ground point on redpoint next time, need to rest now!

After watching Ian on the bottom crux, got to the resting ledge in one go. Got beta on the crux from a guy at the crag - very useful as the pockets weren't immediately obvious. Two very hard moves, first getting the pocket next to the triangular incut and then getting the crimp above with a high right foot (crux for me). The rest of the moves are just hard as opposed to very hard! Apart from the awkward rest (not too bad in a semi sitting down position on one leg), there is little respite until the last few moves. Got to the top first go with lots of attempts on the two hard moves. By the second go I was a bit spent so couldn't do the hard move to the rest ledge clean despite trying from the ground several times. In the end could only do it after a rest on the bolt. Getting the left foot high seems to do the trick but it's still a hard pull when tired. Dogged the rest but improved the foot positioning for the crux - getting the left foot up slightly helped to get the right foot in position. Took a couple of falls trying to clip the last bolt as was getting pretty pumped but managed it in the end just as Ian was suggesting grabbing the draw! One to come back to - should go with more work and being fresh for the redpoint.
