Punpy climb, clipped the in situ cam, then climbed back to a ver poor ledge for a rest as i was using incredibl shit technidue to get overbulge, though through moves and was up and over. very pumpy route, plus on the friday night id done a ten hour night climb in a storm so was kinda tired already but couldnt resist a lead.

Never been so pumped in my life. Forgot to check good footholds before coming over the crux and had to rest. When i found the foodhold i managed. Very welcome stuck gear just below the crux which makes it possible to clip high even with short (and pumped) arms.

An excellent line- not too pumpy and some good rests in between harder sections. Solid comfortable jams with footholds all the way up. Didn't realise there was the slab at the top- so only took enough qds for the lower section, which takes really bomber gear.
