So so so so close three attempts and three falls off rounded holds pass the crux, just getting a bit too pumped to latch the jugs. A bit more training required.

Went for a flash burn at the end of the day but ran out of steam pretty quickly. Feels more solid at the grade than the other climbs I did today. Worked all the moves twice.

monkey_yan - TR dnf - 14/Sep/14 with Lisa Marie Nelson, Emma Sheridan, Laurie Welton, Liam Dobson, Oliver Branagan

Played on it on top previously. - A flash like lead attempt today, fell off crux then finished. Re-practiced the twisty crux on way back down. Then re-led clean. Nice ending.

Did all the moves in isolation but couldn't link up with current climbing fitness. Properly knackered me out.

Worked this all weekend. Got really close but not quite there. Need to get back soon! Really nice sequence and climb, would be awesome if all the holds weren't completely stuck on.

Tried a while back with Chivers in less than ideal conditions. One go to work out the tricky move at the top today and it went next go. Good route. Shame it feels so artificial.
Adam_42 - Lead RP - 11/Apr/14 with Ollie Ross, Dan Boast

Dogged a couple of times. This should go.
philhilo - Lead dog - 29/Mar/14 with misha

Peeled off the small horizontal crimp on the first go, which was annoying but fingers were pretty numb so was to be expected. Did it clean and vey quickly on the second go - having feeling in the fingers and knowing the moves helped.

pumpy but nice line, awkward crux 2/3 up where part of side pull may have come off since the original route. One to go back to clean when it's not drizzling!

andy farnell - Lead O/S - 09/Aug/11 with Ian Patterson

Rested at crux just above jugs. Would probably get next go. Latest grade on the web is 7a+, I think due to holds going. Think it probably is 7a+ in Masson terms (half a grade harder than the 7as we did) but would be 7a in Cheedale.

First tried it almost to the day a year ago. Took a fall somewhere on the crux that time, so pleased to get it clean this time round. Don't think this is as hard as 7a - I'd say more like 6c+.
