This one only took 15 years to work out, but worth every attempt

Have avoided this one for ages, but was surprised it went 2nd go!A bit of a tasty move near the top over a less than ideal landing.

Waited years to climb this. Nearly tweaked something on the start, not warmed up enough. It's quite tough to the 'jug'. From there it's 'no retreat, no surrender' - Unless you've got a stack of pads below you of course!

Slipped off the start, did the top ok - felt a bit sketchy and the top was seeping a bit but no great shakes.
