Ground up 2nd go. Took the fall on my first go, you don't miss the ground by a huge amount but its good fun...

3rd go or something. Was surprised to find the penultimate hold was much worse than it first appeared.

Various attempts. Couldn't even dog it in the end after 10+ attempts on the crux.

Nice... finally a soft touch at sliptones. E2 5c? Might feel harder if you don't use your head and miss the step left before final wall.
Jon Read - Lead O/S - 03/May/10 with andi turner

Dogged it on a TR too - can normally climb 6a ok though. Rockfax is probably right at 6b.
