Rockmonkey1977 12 Sep, 2018 Lead dog Tried it on Sunday once and thought I may be able to rp it quickly... No dice! Today I tried to cheat the start a little due to lack of time to work it out- I started quite far right to skip a few moves but still didn’t prevail. In hindsight I also think I may have been cheating at the bulge by moving left, it seemed like it should be possible staying right but I’m not convinced it would be 7a that way. But I maybe/probably am wrong. Ended up climbing it in the full-on dark, so my first ever head torch ascent, albeit with a few falls. Still think I could get this pretty quickly, without cheating, given half a day to work it...
