Had a look after leading necktie. Think it'll go easy on lead, very straightforward but bouldery, my style!

Couldn't for the life of me reach that last crimp before the jug. Only way I could finish was to use the arÍte. Need to work on lock-off strength!

aided would be more accurate. Very stiff pull to get off the ground now the pointy cheat block has gone. Managed the pull once but came off at first pinch. Aided to LO afterwards to get the gear back as we had to leav quickly.

New North Berwick Project for me!
JLS - TR dog - 23/Aug/08 with Jacqui, Gavin R. & Burnsie

Did it with a super-direct finish, involving an incredibly reachy and very unlikely move through some thin scoops. Great climbing - I reckon the grade with this finish is probably 7a+.
Fraser - Lead RP - 02/Aug/08 with Pete

Onsight till the last bloody move..
