No top out to avoid a prickly mantle into a holly bush...

Got through the banana after a couple of attempts, finish was a little too green and powerful.

Took a few goes to get the moves dialed. The top was way too greasy today to get any traction over so the belly took the brunt.

harrison 08/May/16 TR dnf

Bouldered the start, thought I'd have a go on toprope, spanked at the top. I was trying too go straight up the small finger crack - I've since seen a video of Johnny Dawes going out right to some nicer holds and then coming back to the left for the finish.

typically got to the top moves, but no further. A bit slimey, and a rather unbalanced climb, given the wide difference in difficulty between the main face and the top out. I probably won't return to this.

Lovely climb when you get it right, the key is going again at the top instead of trying to mantel it out from the first mantel - and a cheeky foot placement that you can't see just underneath the bulge at the top.

firsat time fell off the top final move, then completed clean. Five years of waiting but worth it..

Top out is insanely powerful, just couldn't latch the back sloper. Real bummer :-(
