YASSSS.... well chuffed got this on my first red point attempt after one day of work. Found this route generally easier than unforgiven but much more sustained hard climbing. Clipping is a pain as it makes you add an extra move in. Two stars

Super pleased to get this tick after a summer of injury.

Worked out a new workable sequence...
JLS - TR dog - 10/Aug/13 with Koon M., Slovak Pete, Fraser H., Burnsie

What should have been a sequence polishing session was marred by the loss of several holds, including a breeze block size lump from just below the first bolt. The phyc was left in tatters.
JLS - TR dog - 09/Aug/12 with catt

Never had so much rock detach itself from an established route as what we managed to achieve last night! Was getting psyched for a red point before I pulled a large, apparently solid block, from a qd's length below the first bolt, managed to work a new sequence around that bit. Then John promptly removed one of the crux holds higher up. Called it a day!

Worked out the moves, first red point. Good technical climbing once you work out where to place your body to turn edges into holds. 2/3 stars. Great wee route.

Got on to warm up and found myself at the fourth bolt! Quite run out to the lower off and I hadn't climbed this bit before, bit of an exciting finish.

Worked out a sequence 1st go, promptly forgot it all 2nd go. Similar climbing to Unforgiven.
kevg - TR dog - 12/Jun/10 with Burnsie, Fras, Pete Roy

Great climbing straight off the deck. In my opinion, a harder and more enjoyable route than Unforgiven next door.
