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.

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.

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!

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.
