Lower crux through knobbly band and higher crux smooth textured limestone. Both required balance and good footwork. Very varied and interesting route.

Got scared on this climb, found it a bit tricky to read the moves. Made it to the top by grabbing a couple of QDs.

In the rain, 1 rest before the overhang.

Was too confident at the top - popped for a hold that turned out to be terrible. Will be more cautious next time!

Found the climb had two hard moves. Pulling on thin holds in middle section, then working out the balancy moves at the top.

emmafizzle 16/May/14 Lead rpt

found this very difficult but kept trying. really enjoyed the balancy, crimpy finish.

Thought it was 'Inception', being the rightmost route and SEA wasn't in the Rockfax guide

This wasn't in the Rockfax guide, but had a go and got about 2/3rds of the way up, but couldn't get my feet high enough on the cruz move after a bad case of disco leg.
