Getting there... First go got it clean to the bolt by the good T hold but couldn't recover so had a rest. Bolt to bolt from there. Uber pumped by the end, almost felt sick by the end. Borrowed Simon's Scarpa fruit boots, great for heel hooks and didn't notice the weight at all but the front points felt weird - longer and at an inward pointing angle. Would need to get used to that. After a lengthy break, had another go, this time in the yellow willies. Had to have a rest on the bolt below the T hold. Clean after that up to and through the final overlap, then feet popped off as I was getting established just above it - very annoying as had enough in the tank to finish. No problems after that. Needs more work but should go... The placement I but the previous weekend is fine, can get a decent horizontal torque in. A front point placement below the T hold disintegrated when Simon was on it but it wasn't essential, managed without on my second go.Misha - Lead dog - 22/Feb/14 with Simon Ward
First ever go on this, pleased to get to the top after resting on every bolt. Eminently doable. Thanks to Ramon for the beta. Technical and physical in places but it's all there and the section above the last overlap is easier than Jaz. Tried it later on top rope. Blew the first horizontal torque and due to the wet conditions it disintegrated. I scraped the crack out, so it's still possible to torque it - felt iffy but it wasn't great to start with! Top roping was a right pain due to the traversing sections. Eventually came off and couldn't get back on, so lowered off. Will be back!

Careful with the block.

Pleased to nail it clean. The bits and pieces that have come off this route have improved the climbing.

Felt really hard, but mainly because i'm weak, most of the moves felt ok in isolation.

Hoorah. Ticked it at last. Even managed 3 shake outs.

3 laps one pop when a hold broke.

Haha my nemisis route. The traverses felt precarious on nomics due to the steep top-of-the-pick angle on the horizontal torques. Climbing it with fusions felt miles steadier. Excellent varied route.
