Thought the top was hard for 6b? Doh! Ok to a move before the last. Possible though

climbed the wrong route thinking it was a 6a... moves over the bulge and onto the face are thin and difficult

dryvita 25/Jun/17 Lead dnf

Thought I was on Talk. Shut down at crux at the bulge. Will be back to nail this.

Got on the wrong line when meaning to climb "talk" - got to the fourth bolt before backing off.

Loved the route, favourite of the day - climbed towards crux but went way too far left onto next route. Swung back. Flirted with the crux for a while and got slapped back down.

Was meant to be doing this but went too far right at the top (crux) so was off route on the 6a+ next to it! Can't say I climbed this. Had rests as well lower down.

2 attempts. the crux is very eliminate, I wonder how many people are wandering off-line and then wondering why it was so easy ;-)

Stepped right onto ledge by Talk past last bolt, then thin move back up left. Felt the way the holds led but probably should go direct.

More like 6c

Hidden 12/Apr/10 Lead dog
jacobjlloyd 21/Mar/10 Lead O/S

really soft. It looks tempting to finish up the groove by 'Talk', but this would drop it to soft 6c. Finish more direct up the face left of the groove and it just about deserves its grade (still very soft), though its a bit of an eliminate.

Worked this in the first instance as I wasn't sure about the clipping points. The lead went well expect near the end where I pinned my right foot down and found it hard to replace with little or no holds.
