Always been a nemesis of mine even in good conditions. Surprisingly easy today.

May have taken too generous a handful of the break after the crux. Ah well, who cares. Surprised I did it after fruitlessly splitting a tip on that bastarding 'Pebble Wall'.

Absolute cracker. Very few climbs are this good and at an amenable grade that most can enjoy. Three stars and should be on every 7A boulders ticklist.

Softer shoe makes it easier to get your toe in the mid-way hold in the roof. Get a good crimp on the hold half way up the wall rather than open handed.

Took long enough! About 4 sessions worth of work to get the right sequence and cold conditions when I wasn't injured in some way before a quick send. RH to jug. LH to lip. Left toe on the block and right toe in the toe dish. RH lip. LH crimp. Match. Shift foot to jug. Go!
