"Deja vu flash" - first go after a 4+ year gap. Feels easier when you know about the knee bar!

Decent OS attempt, schoolboy error hanging around too long on the steepest section not committing to the obvious sequence.

Decided to get back on this despite finding it nails a fortnight earlier. First go managed it clean to the third bolt, then bolt to bolt but pretty quickly. Felt very doable - nice warm weather made all the difference as it was freezing cold last time. Got back on after a good rest, wasn't expecting to redpoint it but just kept going and got it done! Perfect knee bar rest meant I was feeling good for the top section. Wasn't even that tired at the end as got all the moves right, just got a bit stuck and ended up hanging around on the move across left to the knee bar, it's not even that hard, just hadn't practised that bit, managed to sort it out though as by then I figured the redpoint was on! Still can't quite believe it - the power of redpointing (and good conditions)!

Just about got all the moves on TR but very marginal in a couple or places. Too hard for me to project at the moment. Felt harder than the few other 7b+s I've tried.

Cool! Tried this briefly last year on top rope after doing Yosemite wall and found it hard. Went 3rd go/2nd RP today, forgot lower wall sequence on 1st RP. Didn't find it too bad on the send and didn't get too pumped! Well happy. Middle of the grade?
