Much too hard for me, but determination kept me going to the top, at which point I was too knackered to top out!

Got tired trying to figure out the moves to get above the first break and weighted the rope. Figured it out as soon as I let go (gutted) and then did the rest. Came down and did it clean on 2nd try. 2nd worst sandstone route finish after the roof above the prow at Bowles

Ashamedly dogged after falling. The moves were so good that I couldn't resist checking it out. End of the day and knew I didn't have the guns left to do it from the bottom. Looking forward to going back and doing it properly as its one of the best Sandstone climbs so far.
