Tried this last winter and it was freezing I did do all the moves I only managed the crux once. Came back today to have a proper go. Took me a while to work out the crux once I had sussed the crux It was on. Love the big pop to a crossover to the jug. Had a good rest and had a go but worked it so much I didn't have anything left. As long as I remember what to do I recon it will go next time.

Adjusted my beta and suddenly it was on. Fell off the last move on the 1st rp, didn't climb well at all. 2nd go however everything went well and I clipped the chains. Really pleased with this. Climbed to the right of the bolts and the rattly low undercut has gone..... not me.....

I tried this a couple of years ago in winter and managed it in 2 even though some of t was wet, was gonna lead it then but it was freezing so walked away. Today however was a different story. (?? lost holds) Couldnt remember anything but nonetheless got totally shut down today. The crux is getting to the 2nd bolt and hitting the jug. Pretty slippery.

a bad move choosing to warm up on the fingery lower section of this route...managed it clean to the last clip on the third go so should be good to go next session if I can warm up on something a bit softer
