First go today with quickdraws in. Much harder than Senile Penile. Great thin balancy moves with a final slap to get through the crux.

I find this so hard. I had to relearn the moves but did find them a little easier than last time.
dswansonlow - Lead dog - 22/Nov/14 with TC, Darren McMaster

Climbed this best on the onsight attempt - got all the moves pretty quickly and it felt like I'd get it on the first redpoint attempt. Two redpoint attempts later and I came off at the same point mid way through the crux moves. Wasn't climbing as well on repoint (not getting my feet quite right as I did on onsight attempt). Will go with a little more work as it suits me. Great little route.

The crux of this gave me so much trouble that I thought I would have to give up. I luckily got it on my last attempt purely through stubbornness.

tricky,although once you have the moves its not too bad. If I hadn't had Dave's beta this could have been a much longer affair.

3rd go: done, just. Small but perfectly formed.

2 gos: very close, bit tired and bit dark.

Earlier effort on The Mask cost me this. At last a 7b+ that's 7b+ as opposed to 7c (see: Needle in the Groove and Rompsville!) So close to doing this, just lacked a bit of belief :( Short-lived but totally engrossing technical sequence gains Axle Attack - perfect moves. 1st go: dogged and worked crux, tough on first acquaintance. 2nd go: fell at start of crux but really didn't have moves right onto face sorted. 3rd go: didn't quite have the conviction of my sequence 4th go: so close to getting the diagonal crimp with RH, v quick rest then to top. Just didn't think I'd have enough beans for that go and when I was at end of crux I was like 'Didn't expect to be here' so I sort of surprised myself. Next time!

The crux is quickly passed... or not. The only route I've ever heard ding dong say he couldn't work out the crux of.
