JLS 18/Sep Lead dog

Worked out decent beta on some TR goes. Had one RP attempt. Bumbled my beta pretty much all the way from third bolt. Recovered a bit on the jug before the final crux sequence but either messed up the footwork or a cross through move was harder than expected on redpoint. Either way I fell off about half way through the crux. Never done 7b in a day so reasonably pleased to get reliatively close.

All the moves first go bolt to bolt not enough left to finish off

3rd session. Two falls on first lead attempt - pretty much as expected really.

First 7b, 3rd Redpoint, excellent climb...didn't bother with the last clip would probably have fallen if I had.

Long lived slow burning project, lots of top ropes over the years, slow progression to dogging it on lead, and finally a concerted effort to get it done over the last month

Convinced this is desperate for the grade! 2nd full session. Felt much better with new beta from Anna. Should have done it first RP today but not warmed up enough. Second go felt straightforward. Good route despite being hard for the grade!

First UK 7b!!!!! Climbed it three times that day, fell at the chains twice before actually clipping them (with a hang over haha!). Highly amusing and satisfying day. I only had one day on it before the big hold fell off but I honestly don't think it makes it any harder! Great route, really nice climbing :) easy to drop the end ;)

Directissima was busy so dogged this for a "warm-up". 5 redpoint goes later and still no tick. Highest point on last red-point was gunning for the chains having skipped the last clips - whipper! Very hot and sweaty! Felt hard, but very good.

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 20/Jul/14 Lead RP

Directissima was busy so warmed up by putting the clips in this instead, after that it went 1st redpoint.
