A really, really good route! Wasn't expecting anything when I tied on but glad I did. 1st RP.

Did everything clean with just the few takes as a quick run through ready for the redpoint today but the route was busy and starting to get sun.

First proper time redpointing a route. First time on 12/09 with three rests to the top. Came back and worked the second crux. Dropped the RP twice before getting it clean. Hardest route to date, great fun. First step in Project Climb Harder.

2 run throughs. Power endurance at its best. Linked most moves and did top section wall clean. Feels like it'll go next attempt, if I can bring myself to endure the pain.

Clipped route, worked all moves, can do from the first crux to the chains, just need to sort the lower crux 😄

Just about got all the moves by going through it twice. One powerful move and one strong clip. Last route of the trip. I'll be back!

Second day/go having a look. Dogged it all the way to the top, worked every move. Also figured out a left hand reach to crux side pull to avoid right hand finger lock - high left foot drop with right in the big dish! Came down then attempted a top rope clean assent missed one move in the sequence. Supper pumped will need to work on my stamina.
mr_cf - Lead dog - 22/May/14 with Angela Jackson

Moves will go for me, but kept getting my right hand finger lock stuck with the weight of my left hand baring down on it in the slot, but lifting weight off hands on to feet I was able to realise it but was too tired to carry on, and the guy wanted his draws back!
