Conditions at Dumby not nearly as good as last week, misty and humid. Seepage affecting the two tiered finger hold just before crux made those moves hard to figure out.

Brilliant technical climbing. 5 or 6 sessions over 3 seasons so wasn't a speedy ascent! Happy

Long term project for me though I never got bored of trying it. Such a nice climb and very rewarding to finally do it!

Got moves up to crux but couldn't find way to do crux from the good left hand hold. Going to have to come off crap hold
