Finally!!!! Another epic day. After the 5th or 6th attempt and still falling off on the crux, tried a new hold and sequence and on my final attempt I GOT IT at long bl**dy last!!! Million thanks to John for his patience and persistence that I should keep trying!

Epic day. Had 8 goes and still falling off on the same bit despite new sequence after the 4th go :(
Koon - Lead dog - 27/Aug/15 with John Sharples
Still falling off on the same bit but have got better sequence at the end of the day.
Koon - Lead dog - 25/Aug/15 with John Sharples
Kept falling off the cross over from silk teddies to Hamish teds
Koon - Lead dog - 22/Aug/15 with John Sharples
Better sequence for scary top groove.

Working session, all the moves done, loving the top groove weirdness. Hopefully start redpointing next time.

phew, thought this might end up being an epic, but a few days on a toprope did the trick, and got it on the first red point day. Knowing the bottom half from doing silk teddies made a big difference. Sweet, hardest route to date, and an amazing one at that!

Psyched that it didn't take long to get. Best sport route at the crag!

Yeah! Can't believe it! Nearly off again at the Marlena crux but just managed to keep it together.
Direct move at 4th felt fine.
julesp - Lead RP - 15/Sep/10 with Marcus, MelH
Some of the guys thought going up to the arete after the forth bolt wasn't really cricket so gone back to going direct. Pinch at 4th with right hand. Move feels easier than it did at start of summer but still powerful.

Got it in 2 sections. Falling off a little bit higher every time! Found a better sequence for top to get rid of scary deadpoint.

10 degrees colder made all the difference. 2nd redpoint.

1st redpoint achieved seventh bolt, then sun came round and it was game over! :-(
