Went into the top traverse wrong and fell off. Pleased with a solid effort...

Climbed with Renee. Climbed to replace missing bolt hanger at about half height, just below the groove and crux. Still a brilliant climb but maybe 7a+ is correct.

Top quality old skiool wall climb. No where very hard but nowhere very easy either. Lots of 5b and 5c with careful footwork required. Easy E5 6a,. 7a+ in the official guide which is about right.

Superb techy wall climb. A shake out seems appears just when you want one.

1st RP after one TR O/S burn. Very nice.

JLS 19/Apr/15 Lead RP

Excelled at my usual red point faff but got there in the end. One clipstick dog, one TR clean, one failed RP attempt, one 45min. RP. Time stands still on those no hands rests.

Pretty close to the onsight, but skipped after a poor foot hold choose. Got straight back on and climbed to the top.

Led cleanly up to the slab near the top, then totally ran out of energy - exhausted as third day on.

Red project. Amazing climb, need to go back to get it clean. Managed to clip 9 clean. All moves sorted, just ran out of steam!

Really enjoyed it on first attempt - 1 fall working out the crux and then 1 rest after it. Unfortunately too tired for a successful redpoint.(and toes too sore!)
