Good working day on this. Got a couple of big links, felt much easier than MH at the other end of the crag. Nasty flapper from pocket at second bulge means it's off the menu for tomorrow.

Sussed the moves on Monday and then again putting draws in today. Went next go. Went off lower left pocket on the crux.

Third time tying in. Shocked to do this so quick

2nd 7c and in the same session as my 1st (Dominatrix). Quite close to the flash, fell off the final slap before the rest. Went quite steadily second go.

In two halves. Found the move from the pockets to the big flat hold hard, after annoying start... not my bag.

with Luke Tilley, Conor

Bolt to bolt. Lower groove started to come together. Uncomfortable pocket section above is the crux and will need serious refinement. Upper wall eases after the rest but isn't trivial. An interesting and viable project.
