BLOC BMC / Avon festival. Tried out injured pulley finger. NOt a good idea - crux seemed very stiff & polished att the grade. Lucky to get away with it. These routes aren't much good are they?
Phil Murray - TR rpt - 26/Jul/14

Extremely polished, no gear for the first 6 meters at least. Nice little climb though for a short route.

Does it count as clean onsight if you climbed it 30 years ago. Very excited to have soloed this high again. Didn't think it was any more polished than 30 years ago.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 25/Jun/13

Whilst waiting for Chris another group turned up (Carly, John and Mel) and set u a top rope on Syph. So we took turns on their rope and they on ours. Very polished start but simple enough climbing. The challenge was to find the holds that weren't polished. Would be happy to lead next time.
