Cracks were soaking wet. As a result the crux was the move to reach the top of the crack on wet slopers and terrible jam in flared wet crack, where I fell off a couple of times. Lee said it was a way harder than the dry condition he had climbed weeks ago.

oops fell off the last move to the jugs having crushed the first 3/4 of the route without any trouble (lots of swearing... should have been a standard HVS lead guur and i didn't even get any decent air time). I then did the same thing again rushing in a annoyed state before claming down only enough to gain a small amount of composure to top out using a easier sequence. :'(

Got pretty nailed on this, was in a bad mindset from the first minute questioning whether I could do it. Some tricky moves turning the lip then a bit of a rest, I put in a really painful fingerlock and preceeded to pull on it way too hard, trying to reach past the poor bit of the finger crack. After a couple of attempts I couldn't hold on much longer, had a rest, and found the hold which isn't a jam, tried moving off this and fell again trying to use a useless hold above! Next attempt I threw myself over to the right and found a decent break and finished it off. Very hard for HVS I would say but atleast it's well protected.
