A good mental test in the end. After 2 falls in previous session due to crumbling footholds, and a change of beta, I unexpectedly slipped off the tufa after floating up all the hard climbing. Can't explain what happened. Felt good to refocus and climb it easily next go, just before the sun appeared. Really good route, and not an easy one at 7b.

Put the draws in and then did it. A couple of very long moves in the middle made it feel hard for me. Satisfying to get it done so quickly.

Hell fire. Went for the OS and climbed every move wrong ... still managed to get up to the last bolt ... couldn't clip it, fell the length of the crag and landed less than 2m above the floor. Big fall, but safe if your belayer is switched on. Sent it first RP.

Flashed every move on this on lead. Became terrified at the top and grabbed the chain. Was so pumped I barely got it clipped. Let out a bloodcurdling scream as I thought I was about to die. I hate Malham lower off runouts! Top roped it clean later on. What a punter.

Tried to top rope this as training at end of day. Got through crux but forgot to unclip and was then too juiced to reverse so jumped of. Started from begining of crux again and did to top.

Nice route, fairly reachy. Flashed all the climbing but fell as a foot popped clipping the last bolt (having climbed past the best position to do so...) Quite nasty sideways, rope burning fall. Did it next go.
