clipped into the 2 bolts in the roof, then realized it goes on for another 2 meters. Finish is pumpy.

It was my first climb in Portland. I reached the two bolts in the roof, but failed climb on it. As a randomly met guy was shouting to another climber: "keep going and the holds will keep coming" and that's very truth seeing that guy climbing. Just don't forget the solid hold above the two bolts. BTW, is the thin vertical crack below the roof solid? Looks so fragile.

Dan Lane 04/Jul/09 Lead O/S

Didnt realise where the lower off was, i lowwered from the pair of bolts just above the roof, even though one was very rusty.

Absolutely great climb, my favourite on Portland so far. Couple of technical moves, not too sustained, well bolted, good finish.
