P1 was scary, particularly in the damp conditions on this day! Uses and even a skyhook, which was fairly crucial. Felt the opening moves were more like 6a. P2 was fantastic!

Bad day at the office. Wasn't in the right headspace for some reason, psyched myself out and bailed off onto some of the sport bolts. Epic ab-retrieval of gear commenced. Unfinished business.

Absolutely excellent, almost as good as Rat Race.
Ran out of quick draws.
Warning! The pegs of the hanging belay are shagged. Better to climb doon to the belay chain of Marlina from the peg runners on pitch 2.
Ian Jones - Lead O/S - 08/May/10 with jazzyjackson
Alt lead with Ian. I couldnt finish the 2nd pitch with more full on pump and shist panic symptoms. You gotta love this sweaty awkward rock, its full value for E grades.
jazzyjackson - 2nd - 08/May/10 with Ian Jones
Led both pitches, while Davide looked for his leading head. Felt hard for E2. [Was meant to be a warm up] Still a bit wet.

very intimidated by this climb. pitch 2 was for me and when i left the belay and moved to the peg my head went to tatters. I had a near panic attack, weighted that manky peg to breathe but then cleaned the pitch after a long inner battle. Cant say it was hard or pumpy...i just lost it
