Had worked briefly last autumn. Was surprised it went in about three goes today.

No joy. Maybe a bit tired from yesterday. Just made it to the poor slot but I keep dropping out of the toe/heel squeeze - thought up a new plan in the chariot on the way home though...

Working the crux sequence. Got through to the good slot on the front face once - progress - whoop! Only had an hour to play. Back tomorrow to try and send it.
Joyce - Sent dnf - 13/Jun/15

Had a great session in cold, windy conditions with three rain showers to contend with.Still just need to make that last move into the good crimp on the front face. Felt great up to that point but had struggled to get a foot placement low down which wasted energy for my proper goes. Will be back up for a weekend soon to send it. A really great problem.

Soooo close. Sorted out a new improved sequence for the crux. After two hours of effort/coffee drinking, got my fingers in the wrong part of the last RH crimp before the move to the jug on the arete and was so surprised that I fell off. This will go and it's brilliant.

Closer. Colder but calmer. Can get to the arete pinch OK now. Can get from the crimp after it to the top. Just need that one move in the middle as my feet keep cutting loose.
Joyce - Sent dnf - 24/Dec/14

Had forgotten the sequence since my last visit so had to irk it out again. Got back to previous high point, slapping for the RH pinch, so stoked. Also had to contend with Boulder mats floating right beneath me as I hung from the roof as the wind was blasting in. Also, had a short break as two mats disappeared over the crag top with a strong gust and ended up at Demon Wall Roof!
