No idea how I did the crux move but apparently it was pretty weird.
Guy Atkinson - TR RP - 08/Sep/14 with Tim Read

The moves in the starting section before the traverse seem easy 5c to me, as well as the big high step to slanting pocket once you have traversed. Did this clean onsight with an audience and was proper chuffed. Quality climbing on great rock, technique definitely helps! 4 stars.

Got up to just about the last move but got too pumped trying to figure it out and came off too pumped to try again straight away.

Sometimes in pays to work out the moves yourself . . . crux wasn't that difficult in the end . . . right foot, left then right onto the break.

Really nice climb. Got pumped out at the end so struggled with the top out. Will have to try to do better next time!
