A bit too polished

with Simon palmer
Jeremy Wilson 06/Mar TR O/S

Excellent climbing. Definitely go right to climb the wall/rib at the top.

with Andy C, Paul Cox
Tom Redwood 02/Mar Lead dog

Had another go after getting so close last time, only warmed up on a 6a and too hot midday even with breeze. Be great to finally get it on a return trip in good conditions.

with Mike505
Mike505 02/Mar Lead dog

Tried to fit it in before our flight, should have warmed up properly and probably not done it in the mid day heat! It'll go but I need to climb faster and use the rests properly.

Tom Redwood 28/Feb Lead dog

Lead on pre-placed draws, got through the overhang super pumped, rested for 20 minutes messed up the top sequence too far left, got stuck and pumped out above the last bolt, so close some feet and mad lunges may have had it in the bag!

Slithered out of the groove level with the last bolt onsight. Too hot to be bothered trying again.

kieranor ?/Dec/18 Lead O/S

Did a big link up with Ben starting up a slabby 6c+ and traversing across to Sara at half height, climbing the finger crack of that and swinging over to the kneebar rest before the crux of redders which I nearly dropped ! Great fun !

Should have onsighted but tried really hard to use terrible two finger pocket which was really chalked and visible from below when there was actually a much better hold hidden just below it, when will people learn to not just cover every single thing which could be a hold with chalk just in case it is and use their brain instead, FFS. Did easily seconded go after a quick chunder.

badgerjockey 16/Mar/18 Lead dog

Cruised the first 30m this time and through the roof, dropped it on the long reach to the blind pocket 2m from the chains...

badgerjockey 15/Mar/18 Lead dog

So much for a rest day... Entirely doable. Stay out of the slabby death groove at the top and climb direct on small but better holds over the exposed rib. So much chalk everywhere hard to find the right sequence in the roof but actually the hands are so good the polished feet are not an issue. Mega rest at the hole too. Definitely worthy of the stars.

Pre breakfast climb! :) As usual, Marty's beta saved the day! That last move though...

Ran up to give it a burn after waiting for rain all day, top drawer route. so close to flash with Hannah's beta but there was a snail in the big sidepull pocket on the top crux which put me off so I dropped the next move. Fuck snails
