If u stick to the right it's quite strenuous. Left looked much easer. Loved the top mantel to.

Funky move with the footwork that was rather committing. Maybe not the best route to warm up - but a lovely climb none the less!

Not great. The bolt line is clearly meant to be climbed direct, and the independent moves are ok, but the line pulls you left leaving a confusing eliminate.

Started a long way right, where it was really chossy and unpleasant. Broke a foothold and wasn't happy with where I was relative to the bolts, so traversed over to Slings Shot (where somebody was already climbing) and down-climbed on lead.

After the cock-up of my previous climb, Phil made me do Slings Shot "properly". I went up very directly this time, making it much harder for myself than I needed (turns out he made me climb Crocadilia instead). Nice climb, like the flowstone.
