A magnificent direct pitch, sustained and fingery but still low in its respective grade. A long reach or some cunning heek hooking helps.

Dogged and Clip Sticked, struggling like crazy most of the way until the first decent hold past the crux. Crux very stiff for me (tall and lanky). Sadly, a fitting end to the worst day of climbing I've had in years managing to dog a 6a+ "dnf" a 7a on top rope and then this. Totally dejected :-( . . . . . . . still, tomorrow's another day eh? Post Edit: don't climb while injured :-( picked up a rotator cuff injury 2 weeks previous to this day which set me back months and months.

TR'd once a few months ago. Led putting the draws in. Felt fine, bit pumpy but really good fun.
