Really good. powerful crux move to the jug out of the overhang

Ethical conundrum. I reached the last holds three times but didnt/couldnt top out due to an intense lichenage covering the top of the boulder. Does it count as done since I matched the last hold? Ill do it again anyway. Cool route felt powerful my skin is still sore. Heroic

Great moves through the crack. I used a toe hook/cam in the crack and a heel hook on the face. Sweet stuff.Felt hard for 6b...

One of best problems at the cliff 6b+

jeddb 12/Mar/16 Sent x

Not quite from a sit start as didn't realise it was supposed to be, but doesn't make much difference to the difficulty

2nd go today, after having had a few tries in a previous session. Holding the cut loose feels brilliant!
