Kept putting this off for 'the onsight' but if I keep waiting I'll never do it. So, decided to just try it and see. It won!! Awesome route though, Will I ever be fit enough now? Have to see about that....

Fell on the onsight with my hand on the top of the crag... gutted! Top crack and top-out wet, missed the jug and couldn't stick the wet slopper with a epic pump. Got it second go with with a bit less panic in the wetness.

Fell off just before the crux, then at the crux, then again. Pretty much frigged my way up it in the end. Can do all the moves. Maybe next time.
