Proper baltic, stripped off about 15 layers of down before jumping on and numbing out by the second bolt. M did well to get up this second go, awful warm up given the conditions.

More enjoyable than Dead on Arrival, but still very polished.

Fell at crux, soon as I got left foot in the right place it was slot easier

with Harry
jang 23/Jun/11 TR dog

With rope in place after we'd played around on DoA to the left. Looks easier from the ground; probably isn't. Quite a bouldery problem with lots of rockovers - more so than DoA. As long as you're happy to hang around on a hand and a heel it's quite a nice climb, but I suspect it'd seem scarier without the fixed rope. Got to the top and found myself asking, "how the hell did I finish this five minutes ago?" :-) - think the crux is getting to the top from the RHS rather than the left.
