DMC 31/Aug Lead dnf

Made it past the bold start only to find I am nowhere near tall enough to make the huge span move. Then spent ages faffing about aiding past the crux only to fail again on the layback above. Lowered off and abbed for the gear. Maybe one day I'll manage this.

Really happy to send this, been on my mind for a while! Just one of those climbs, when it comes together it feels great.

A life achievement for me. Unbelievable! Got it 3rd go this session. It felt impossible on the first go and I fell of the last hard move on the 2nd go (cue screaming obscenities). Incredible climb and one that I'll never forget.

Wow. Thought this would be a DNF open the account sort of go. Figured out the beta really quickly, but it was too dark to give it redpoint goes for me. Phill tried it in almost pitch black, lit with a bike light!

Misha 14/Jul/16 Lead dnf

Hard but brilliant! Fell off the barndoorey layback flake a few times. Strenuous and technical but very safe. Pleased to get into the crack on the first go (great transfer onto a finger lock, not that hard as the feet stay on). Had a few goes but just couldn't crack it, even from sitting on the gear. Found a good way to place the gear though - LH palm up in the bottom of the diagonal crack, RF on the sloper below the hand jam break, LF flagging out L - this gave me plenty of reach, still a bit blind but the placements are good (cams 0.3 and 0.4 or nut 6ish (though didn't place it), cam 0.5 can be placed higher in the flake after moving below it but probably best not to as it gets in the way a bit). I was going high LH in the flake but in the photos some people are going high RH, might be something to try but ultimately RH needs to go in the pocket. Got to the pocket on the last go but still barn doored off. One to come back to!
