Finally seem to be able to link large sections, although the dyno is still a 50/50 at best. Time to the roll the dice and lead it...

Another Session on Spong. Can now link everything up to the dyno - which I now cannot do! 1 step forward, but two steps back.... Some new stiff shoes and some self belief may well lead to a clean ascent soon.

Another session - all the moves done (though the dyno took some 20 tries)

Great route! Have to switch from steady techincal climbing, to all out explosion for the dyno, back to steady climbing again for the last moves. Got all the moves fairly quickly except the dyno. Got as close as fingertips touching the edge of the hold and happy with that for a start. Tried the rock over alternative for the dyno but couldn't even move on it! Feels very climbable with all the moves going first or second go. It is very sustained though and linking it all together (especially the dyno!) is bot going to be easy. Looked well bolted apart from perhaps the first bolt.

Opening up the account with Spong! Worked out most of the moves, but some still seem distinctly harder...

more superb slate: tired and cold but all moves done except crux - no time to work the options. felt straightforward enough assuming crux isnt significantly harder
