Felt better this time, rock was cleaner and less damp. Move around the corner still as hard.Roberttaylor - TR dog - 28/Feb/13 with Thomas Wall
Still not getting this consistently. One move going round the arete) gets me every time. Lower section (up to the jug) seems harder than it was a couple of years ago?

Climbed arete direct from quartz band, didn't know that people stepped right into blade runner for gear and jugs. great climb and safe, 4 micro wires equalised in pairs and then climbed on double ropes.

Block fallen / removed from 2m and a smaller one from R of arete at upper crux. Starting moves a bit harder for sure.

dmacmorris - TR dog - 31/Oct/10 with Kevin Woods
Score! Honestly felt easier on lead than on toprope cos there was more at stake! Filled the crack with 4 micros equalised by using twin ropes (thanks Topher). The gear is better than people make it out to be. Brassy microwires worked best.

Took the fall three times trying to do the crux the hard way. Numpty!
Gear crack was full of mud, take a thin nut tool up to clean out the placements!
