After 1 year without trad climbing, gear placements took ages and didn't trust them at all so pulled over the roof a nervous wreck, gained the jugs and waited for the shaking to stop. Still felt like an awesome climb afterwards

Good moves up the groove, buckets through the bulge and interest maintained up the final wall. Excellent route.

Fantastic! The moves through the roof are incredible at the grade. It was a bit damp under the roof but it didn't interfere with the climbing at all.

Bloody freezing (including upwards snow). Fairly pleased with my effort on the first half, and probably a valid excuse for failure.

Lovely route. Several 5a moves - not sure about 5b though. Neither the start nor the roof felt that hard. There is a ridiculously polished foothald at the start which isnt needed.
