Toproped clean 3 times in a row despite one or two damp holds. But, clipping looks like it may be tricky/scary...we shall see, next time!

2nd RP attempt of the day, after blowing the first at the rockover at the top of the groove. Ended up skipping the 3rd clip as I couldn't work out how to clip it before the hard move it protects. Almost ballsed it up right at the top by getting wrong handed on the last hard move but thankfully salvaged the redpoint!

Now then, comments re Bleep and Booster.... If that is 7A then this harder..... at least 7A+.

pathetic! had to clip stick the crux since the only thing worse for me than a rock over is a rock over above a bolt. Got the move first time I actually committed. Woose. Great climb though

Still feels hard going through the groove low down but glad to have ticked it. [Incidentally, the photo in the gallery here titled "Neil at the first resting ledge on War Hero" doesn't show War hero, it shows Mid Air Collision, F7b]
