A miserable evening: rain, low cloud, most routes wet. Climbed this then retreated to Redpoint.

Ugh. Thuggy and awkward. This route is often mistaken for Sophisticated 7a, which does not exist as a current bolted line. Claimed ascents of Sophisticated are actually this route - there are no bolts between A Day Called Zero 8a and Pyscho-Babble.

Pumpy and after three days of climbing already my arms were shagged so dropped the last move which was a bit gutting but I will get it when warming up next time.

Savage. Got all the moves sorted except the long stretch to the flake off right at the top. Keen to lead this at some point, but not quite yet.

Use the flake to the right of the crack near the top (see photo). Be careful to clip the bolt before the lower off as soon as you can reach it otherwise there is a high risk of hitting the boulder below should you fall (I have brusies to prove it!). Hard 6B+.

Routes this steep really don't suit me - tired arms meant that it felt much harder than it should have been. good route with some nice moves though.
andy dunn - Lead dog - 03/May/10 with J

Didn't think a route with such big holds could be so hard
Jack R-N - Lead dog - 24/Apr/10

Crack was wet. Clipped the lower-off first go, but grabbed the draw.

Warm up route. Tried finishing direct rather than using the big flake out right which seems a bit off route. Too hard this way so resorted to the flake method.

3rd bolt preclipped by climbing up the bank oppposite it and leaning across. Testing little number.
