So psyched to get this! Final day of climbing, something like 8th day on. Dogged it first. Messed up the low crux on 1st RP attempt, was pumped by the second bolt on the 2nd attempt but persevered and somehow got through it. Brilliant climbing.

Second go - Tricky crux low down into sustained hard moves all the way with some good flag moves on slopey sidepulls & flat sloped edges and a brilliant finishing sequence. Feels hard on first aquaintance but climbs so well when you know it. Very polished on white limestone. My gob is smacked, one of the best at it's grade I've climbed.

Went bolt to bolt on Calum's draws to work the moves out. Decent climbing, will be pumpy tho! Pretty polished, not that psyched on it

Great route but too hard for me at the moment :(

Really cool route, much better than Poema de Roca. Fell off low down crux and top move first go putting clips in. Went next attempt without practice. Low down section felt hardest but whole route is very sustained. Good holds are everywhere, just need to move between them and not get pumped! Very polished again.

End of the day after spending the day trying a project. Was actually shocked to onsight it as I felt awful when I first pulled on and very cold. Gets much easier as you get higher I think. Great route, harder to onsight than Honk Down? Or was I just really tired?

Quality. 3rd go but should have gone on second (just didnt work out where to clip after crux)

Amazing flowy climbing. Felt really nice putting the draws in from the lower off on Poema and checking for blind holes before giving it a blast.

Haydn Jones 18/Jan/13 Lead β

Had perfect beta still felt hard

atapper21 17/Jan/13 Lead rpt

The ultimate training route, open hands and smooth holds, try down climbing it for a pumpy excursion
