Slipped off start three or four times so can't claim the onsight.

Super pleased with this, very technical low down amd well worth 5c in rockfax. Eases off considerably once feet are above the wee pocket. Gameo would make either a good finish or an easier start.

Ground up yo yo style. Plenty up and down placing gear. Wasted a lot of energy failing to find a way to place gear, slumped onto gear. After good rest made it to the top.

Nice route, if you can get through the first couple of moves it's in the bag.

Cryptic, easy once you know how but tiring hanging around trying to work it out!

Graeme Hammond 26/Jul/11 Lead rpt

excellent finger jams and quality moves once you find the right holds, I think I enjoyed my previous accent more even though it was only clean steeping in from the block after a rest. Still good to get the proper tick tonight. Moved one of the dead sheep from the base of the climb too.
