Hard! Good steep pocket pulling and hard pulling over the bulge then a nails final section that felt run out. Full on and excellent. Should have done better but I was knackered.

Good moves but is let down by the grade varying massively on which line you take.

Was lured left by jugs (off-route) - bit scary missing two bolts. Cool pockets mind, shame I messed it up.

Had a play on this last year, did first go on tr and never bothered with the lead. No harder than 6c but worth doing, much better than bueno bonito.

Fell going for the final jug on the onsight! Nightmare!! Really cool climbing on pockets with a bit of a wandering line.

Stone Muppet ?/Apr/11 Lead dog

Unclear line - went left up the chalked arete and skipped a bolt by mistake! Finish could go either left or right also, I went right.

Chris had aided himself to the top, I managed to TR to the tricky buldge move before resting on rope. Went to right of the buldge to pass it.

tried the left hand version due to Robins suggestion, which must be pushing 7a. Then tried to lead the right hand (correct and much easier line) but was too tired and failed on the last move!
