Day 6 - Well, disappointed to have squandered my best efforts on imprecise/mis-remembered beta. Body unable to pick up the slack generated by a sloppy mind... Wasted opertunity. :(

Excellent conditions today. 1st RP

JLS 27/Sep Lead dog

Day 5 - Feeling weak & warm conditions didn't help.

with Koon
Koon 27/Sep Lead dog

Best attempt was falling off the last moves to the chain. Think I have got better beta for the reachy moves...

JLS 18/Sep Lead dog

Day 4 - good session, got above the last bolt on first proper redpoint attempt so doesn't feel far off.

Koon 18/Sep Lead dog

Got flashed pumped on HT I reckon!!

Favourite line at the crag? Kung fu move was a stopper but got there after few weeks.

Day 1 - A couple of try's on the the bit from the rest to the end...

thomasburley 12/Jul TR dog

All the moves on TR , section from half-way rest is just a great piece of climbing and Dunkeld is a beautiful place and not very midge compared to the West coast at the moment.

Went a lot quicker than expected. Definitely a plus grade harder than Hamish teddies though...

A good bit harder than Hamish Teds, worth 7c

Tried for marlinas purse but no joy, too many forgotten moves, all became clear but by then arms drained!

2nd go. Dropped it just before joining TSP from a hasty foot-ping.

with Jemma Powell
stugreen75 03/Jul/13 TR dog

Had a go when feeling whacked after sussing out UN. Feels significantly harder. A bit of a project for me.

Too cold on the fingers to climb a whole route today, numb tips, disapointing.

Put the clips in then 3rps...two new sequences learnt (i think). Quite hot today poor friction!

julesp 22/May/12 Lead dog

very warm and greasy but individual moves came back to me mostly and all felt ok.

with amanda and angus
ANC 16/May/12 Lead dog

Put the clips in and then two red point attempts. Easy to the 'Marlina' crack and thereafter really just learning experiences. Got some particularly good beta at the end of the day and during attempts. Project.

ANC 15/Apr/12 Lead dog

Clean to marlene crack, would have been asking too much to get it first try even with beta. Seems sequency. Will need a couple of goes to work it out better. Defiantly much harder than HT and UN.

Fell off final move... twice. Can't get any closer.

First 7c (depending on which guide you believe...)

Sam the Butcher 12/Jul/10 Lead RP

Can't believe I hadn't tried this before

with adam
sheppy 24/Apr/10 Lead RP

Unsure whether Marlina is 7c or not? Then add in the purse groove to seal the deal :-) "Marlinas Purse" feels like a better line anyway.

with simon
Dangerous Dave 14/Mar/10 Lead RP

Sweet. Done on my 1st redpoint attempt. Felt quite easy as these things do when you get it right.

with Marcus
Dangerous Dave 11/Oct/09 Lead dog

Got good beta on top section hopefully will nail it next time.

with Marcus
Dangerous Dave 01/Oct/09 Lead dog

Got a sequence on the last section where it goes left. Not sure its a good one though!

whistler 01/Oct/09 Lead dog

Very technical. Shame it's so far away!

akhughes 29/Aug/09 Lead RP

Harder than teddies, probably easy 7c

mhairi thorburn 25/Aug/09 Lead RP

6 days work! More that teddys. Harder than hamish teds, if hamish is 7b+ then this is definately 7c. Lead hamish straight after i lead marlina and its a lot easier. whatever though, glad to have it done! Awesome route.

1st redpoint after falling high on the flash, more like 7c, harder than Teddy's

Quite tricky at end. Probably deserves 7c.

Marlene? The moves are OK, even had 1 go at the RP, but if I said I wasn't completely shut down by this I'd be lying.

best route on the sport wall. Hard 7B+, but not enough 4 7c! More technical but less powerful or pumpy than Hammish!
