Took a couple of goes to commit, lovely move but good grief the footholds are trashed. Finished up Ash Tree Wall.

SuperLee1985 22/Oct/16 2nd β

Took a few attempts. Ended up using steves beta and felt fine when actually dod it, worked feet up then swing a high left into the pocket, press down and streach up to a small pocket with left hand, keep pressing and then bump up to the break. Semin interesting move furthet up to gain the sloping ledge too.

Rematch. Found start surprisingly hard on first acquaintance a few days ago. Was mentally re-enacting - as you do - when the easy way dawned on me. Still good move, but steady 5b and not that reachy. Dim not to see it straight off but wrong way gave fine climbing! Mat for start then normal route to top.

Dratt - thought the route was further right. Spent numerous attempts to reach rubbish holds. Should have started a foot to the left and, I guess, used the big hold for feet rather than protection.

Bouldered out the start several times just to make sure I wasn't wasting my time getting my rope out, got it after about 10 goes, need to smear on the poor smear, pull up and REAAAACH then pop right foot up onto an edge over on the right. After tieing on to finish off the rest of it, I proceded to take falls off the bouldery start for atleast 25 goes I think. Eventually I caught the pocket and went up the rest, which turned out to be much more pleasent than I thought, certainly no more 5b moves but still quite thought provoking, ended up running out atleast 7 or 8 metres at the end! Michael followed with ease it seemed!

Did the initial slab, traversed left and then down the HVD on the arete. Not into highball solos!
