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!

Mostly climbed rope with the odd dab on the rock. I won't be sending any time soon.

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
