One of the most popular sport routes in the area. Follow the line of bolts on the slab directly below Requiem to a lower off. Moving out left then back right at the fourth bolt is the crux.

First attempt on the route - fine(ish) till the 3rd bolt. next three I'm miles off.

Yeah :D finally went today :D did a top rope inspecting (plugging draws really) and wasn't to impressed with friction and foothold had been snapped but went for it anyway. I have taken 6 massive whippers from the last move so super happy it wasn't a 7th, would have got is sooner but an ankle injury took me out. The draws from Cassidy's new 8b Unfinished Symphony were still plugged and i felt like "Should I"

Don't usually log repeat ascents but was chuffed that this felt pretty easy not long after coming back from a 2 month injury layoff. Must have been designed by a cosmic climber, top quality route.

Damp, but dried out enough. Got it after putting the clips in and a cocked up RP. Strangely had more dramas with the mid section than the top, which felt relatively easy this time. Was climbing like a nonse though...guessing it'd be slightly better in good conditions.
