Tough finish!! Felt more 6c to me. So nearly fell at the top of the layback but just managed to hold it together

First try today, felt cruisey. Must have improved, or been too knackered when I first stepped to this.

Ace climb, took several whippers off the break when gas ran out before working out the sequence

Had to go up to rescue Ben's gear; hadn't pulled the rope through so had up to the crux on top rope.

One fall within touching distance of the lower off: should have rested for longer after my abortive attempt on Cut Throat Jake.

Very nice. Lots of fun. Possibly considerably easier for those 6foot or taller as my shorter partner found the second to third clip far harder

Fell on last clip then trashed the last few moves whilst feeling very pumped. Awful attempt!
