Took a while on this! Not quite obvious enough to engage sport mode. The traverse sections require a bit of thought.
Chriswallis2 - Lead O/S - 04/May/14 with Anna

Felt really hard. Got up to the square overhang without too many difficulties but the move into the crack spanked me. Another day!

Beautiful route. Lots of side pulls so pretty sustained. Pinged off because I couldn't hold my position to remove some gear around the crux

freezing cold, loads of wind, inverting chalk bag, chalk in my eyes, wet crux, hot aches, rain and hot aches again - freaking awesome

Tough little cookie, worth it though for a new size 0 nut and runner!!

A Very tight rope at times! Hard. Steep. Technical

Left behind a size 0 wire & runner, d'oh!! In the unlikely event that next ascensionist reads this ...

hard start, didn't rest in the middle and found the top hard. Great final groove - wild.

Top feels desperate... until you locate the hidden finger lock!

Good sequence busting right and a finish which you don't feel like you deserve when you get there.

Got on this as I guessed it would be moe likely than Penny. Found the lower groove bold but fairly steady and did break some rock off! Got to the ledge, then some guys abbed off down the line I was on so had to wait for them, during this time, the sun went in and the temperature dropped. Got up to the peg and backed it up but coldness plus the steepness of the wall above made the pump in my forearms hard to argue with. Will be back.

i'll naughtily take a retro flash for this (tried 3 years ago but dont remember much). superb route, felt slightly bold to start though good nuts (i did the correct start as opposed to starting up Penny [aka Katana] and then traversing into Final Solution then trying to finish via Sai Dancing - what the hell was i thinking / doing last time!) with cool, well-positioned moves across the headwall. i thought these might be 6b but in fact its 6a if you use the holds! the pod was actually straightforward but i dislodged my gear as i moved up so it all felt quite interesting. one of the best at Holyhead.

Lovely bit of climbing. boldish bottom section to final solution, then hands off before launching out in 3 good pulls.

took my time on this and paid the price with encroaching darkness. the move rightwards across the headwall is surely 6b (fell about 3 times here before grabbing peg and aiding through). once through that, the box seemed to require thought but thats where i called it a day. one to go back for...
