felt hard, but maybe just found it difficult to find sequence?

I thought this had a tough crux but I also thought it was 6c! At 7a it's pretty fair i'd say

Flashed the whole thing (with some beta for the crux) but somehow managed to slip off a massive foothold on the easy bit just after the crux. Not sure how that happened! Still, pleased with the attempt. Surely more like 6c+ as given in the latest guide?
Si dH - Lead dog - 25/May/10 with Jim R, Andy Morris

Messed up "the move" on my first go, but was going for it quite well. Got it first redpoint - only really one hard move but nice balancey moves on the headwall.

Superb moves low down and a great headwall.
northerngreg - Lead RP - 23/Mar/09 with Jo Lee

Once I'd figured the move between bolts 1 and 2, the rest wasn't too hard.
northerngreg - Lead dog - 21/Mar/09 with Jo Lee

Thorouhgly enjoyed this route after working the moves. Will get it led soon.
