Messed it up at the end of a session a while back, did it end of the session today. My stamina has improved but I still had to work.

Warm up on Rachel's clips. Rather polished towards the bottom but a good route and feels a bit like a trad route in places due to the rock features. Bolts a bit too spaced low down.

Put clips in on lead. Not my style at all - surprised to see all holds are pretty much jugs. Good knee bars below the overlap. Slightly spooked by bolts spacing in bottom part.

Have probably done before. To get conners clips out. Also played on sticky wicket, didnt get as far as before, another 7b 2nded directissima, and couldnt do face value due to pumpage. Tried franky. Couldnt get past sidepully bit. Good day. nice and tired
