Rockfax Description
A sequency power-problem through the mid-height overhang. Originally the second crux was done as a layback all the way up the groove, harder. Many now use a small crimp to rock up and leftwards to overcome this section. © Rockfax

Managed to top rope it with one fall then did the crux to top! Tried it lead but ran out of steam.

1st session. a few top rope plays. Got to the crimp fine. hopefully crimp will feel better in colder conditions. little of the rest goes as yet.

2nd day trying this one. Managed to link the crux moves but popped off the small crimp after the pinch. Starting to feel like this will go with a few more sessions!

Worked out the beta, I ended up choosing left hand mono after straining my right middle finger. Will have to train for this one and come back stronger.

What an idiot. Mint conditions and I fall off the one move I've never dropped before. Got through the crux easily... skipping the bolt is scary :(

Seemed very hard through the middle section

Quick play to see what's the score, feels hard

Fell doing the long reach move from the pinch. The hard moves were over! Done that three times now! Lame.

Couldn't even do the first hard move on the dog but then somehow did it 1st redpoint!

3.5 redpoints today. High point going for the last crux move. The .5 redpoint ended with a trip to A and E for my head to be glued back together, thanks to the guys climbing nearby.

This time it's serious. Got from ground to move going for the pinch and whole crux sequence sorted. Just need to come back with power.

Made some progress, got a sequence for the crux. Made it to half way through the crux before peeling off.

No idea how to do the crux. Wet holds provided an excuse but suspect that wasn't my only problem.

Started the 8a proj. Easy climbing before and after crux, just and insanely hard few moves - 7 in total...another 4 to dial for me! And so it begins...
