On 2nd RP. Knowing the top section from Space Race I've just done a couple days ago helped : ) Pleased to do it in one session!

Had done various bits years ago, nice line of low resistance

Great varied climbing even though it weaves about a bit, some tricky moves getting over the overlaps high up

Humid on the day so made it feel harder with tell

1st time on route, draws in with 3 rests. Top roped clean on second go. 3rd try failed at the top overlap. 4th try was bloody close, got through the overlap and stood up on the lip but had my left foot wrong so I could not swap feet and move left to the last bolt. Annoying but I definitely have it next time.

finally, onsighting feels good again. cool knee bar...prob 7a+ but brilliant moves all the way. Then worked Mescalito... (and accidentally tr'd clean to the new dawn ledge at the end of the day on second 'dog' - oops, should've been on lead!)
