One fall this time, working the crux(es).

with Cindy
cindylmy 28/May TR dog

Beta warning! Scroll past if you don't want beta. (Noting this down for my own future reference) First move is impossible for 5foot tall person! At my fullest reach with a smear, I'm nowhere close to the first handhold. Freddie helped by pushing my foot onto the holds so that I could stand up on the higher left foot without any handholds to get that first hold. Traversing across, matched foot carefully on the first handhold, I also had help from a pocket on the right, which allowed me to reach the rail with my left without having to trust a smear and not put too much strain on the let hand crimp. At the crux, attempted the beta with the right toe on ledge; span between left hand ledge and crescent hold was slightly beyond my reach. Found a pebble foot above my knee, stood on that- need to experiment with facing left or right; did it facing left, however, thinking back facing right might be easier. I had some help from the top rope to stand up on the foot to finally get that crescent hold about 1 metre above, would be doable with some practice! It was a breeze afterwards following the diagonal rail (no height issues here; loads of nice rests; some bridging and smearing), until the last move where I had my right leg on a small diagonal ledge to reach the hold before the last jug. Realised afterwards that to go for the jug, I had to have my right foot on the right horizontal ledge, so I'd need to swap foot but was in such a precarious position! Resting and then swapping my foot upon coming back on the wall made the move so much easier! Only one attempt, but well knackered, will need to try it on a cooler day. La Sportive Mythos made this attempt much easier than it would have been with my other one!

Couldn't get myself past half way, need about 50x more finger strength and I might be able to crack it, mega impressive seeing Harry and Holly manage it

such an awesome route, so pleased to get it second try-what an insane rock over/mantel !!

Took one fall on mantle but only because I missed a hold. Did it clean after that. Don't think i have the balls to solo it though. Great route

Only one fall at the same point as normal. Got that move second attempt. So close to getting this clean now.

Got it clean second go; would probably want a couple more goes on a slack top rope before committing to the solo!! Traverse section feels very fluffable.

Vaguely watched a few people attempt it, then flashed it on top rope. This would no doubt be a bold solo. It does ease out up top so if you can get the crux you should be more than capable of finishing it.

Andrew Barker 28/Oct/09 Solo β

Pure class. Tried about a week and a half ago but did my usual trick of getting really scared and downclimbing and leaving it for a while. No problems today - managed to enjoy it rather than being gripped. A bit borderline as an onsight as I spotted Skippy on it previously but I ended up doing pretty much all the lower moves completely differently and couldn't see how he did the top! No pads used.
