28m. The best way to climb the route these days is from the ground up the popular and technical new start, just to the right of Indecent. Start behind the tree stump and trend rightwards to the first break above Jehovah Kill. Continue up the original route from the break.

Great route. On my first attempt I got all the way through the section above the bulge, only for the jug at the end of the rightwards traverse to come of in my hands - it felt a bit creaky before but was a bit of a surprise nonetheless! There's a good/almost identical hold still in its place, no harder.

A couple of sessions this week. Progress, but starting to get frustrating! Have made it through the bulge to the pocket hold. Not far to go...

Linked "Push Up" through the rockover to the chipped pocket. Have also linked from the break to the top, so making progress. Very much not my regular style, being a stamina fest, but enjoying the process.

In a session. First go up fluffed the rockover, second go felt great. Superb from top to bottom.
