Made it 2/3rds of the way up before running out of juice and falling. Regardless of the fall the route up to there had been sweet! Can't wait to give it another go!

Awesome line there is loads of gear but very strenuous to place. A few 6a moves & hell'a pumpy climbing, the whole wall is slightly over vertical when you look from the other side......very well protected deserves e4 6a

Out of sequence + pumpy, will return for the lead.

So close! This went well till I barn-doored off the top crack after missing the holds out left. Nasty upside down fall with my leg behind the rope. Pretty sure if I'd seen the holds it would have been in the bag. Gutted. Thanks to the chaps who gave me a tope rope to finish it off!

that was an effort! totally brilliant, bit of an arm-melter peering into the crack to place gear (friends a definite advantage here but you can get great large nuts in). loved the bit where i wanted to stop but couldnt as that would have meant a fall so i had no choice but to continue :) perfect trad!
