Matt made this look pretty easy, I found it less so. Good warm up but not my favourite Climbing in Portland by a long way.

Only climb of the day, but lovely and long. Really cool pockets and features on the main face.

Good quality route with two contrasting halves the lower blocky wall is steep on buckets however when you turn the roof via a tricky mantel the angle and style totally changes. Small holds and excellent balancy moves lead to the longest run out on the route from the last bolt to the clips!

Favourite route at Portland so far. Upper slab is lovely. Shame the lower wall is blocky and easy, makes it a bit unbalanced.
