Very run out from 3rd to 4th bolt! But loved the climb, one of my favourites.

Fluttery climb, bolts before and after crux spaced out, potential for whippers! Great climb though, technique required and somewhat sustained.

not really in shape for all these steep side pulls but the main issue was commiting to the crux above the bolt!

Did as a warmup. Super tired and head in wrong place. Didn't commit to last move and down climbed :(

Easy all the way then hard move(s) onto the arÍte out of keeping with the rest. Tried on lead but couldn't commit to the move. Made it on top rope after a rest.

Gav attempted this lead first but couldn't make the move onto the arÍte. I climbed up on his rope and led through to finish it. Did a big rock over for the hard bit - tough move.

with Gavin
Dizz 26/May/14 Lead O/S

Bolted for the 7a+ (uses same bolts) hence feels slightly run out. Thought worthwhile especially brilliant airy crux move well above bolt! :)

Scary bolting, the crux move is WAAY above a bolt, I backed off the lead after 2 falls failing to commit to the big move. Crux transfer from flake to pillar felt 6a+ to me.

poorly bolted for the crux. About F6a+ but a one-move wonder. Worthwhile all the same...
