Cracks definitely not a strong point for me, so was happy to make it to the move out left under the mini roof before taking a rest. Top looked quite blank without the flake out left.

Rock to Fakey 05/Jul Lead dog

B3-4 a bit run out too, but holds ok. Got to b4, the one out left from mini roof, get good rest just below miniroof too, then found it desperate, and very run out to the lower off... Presume hands on the big left flake up there is not in? Can see several scars where hand/ foot holds have peeled off. Nice jamming, good moves, sketchy at top, could still pump out on those high jugs below lower off ... a worry to clip lower off, even off those jugs, if pumped! Quite sustained, + Pretty tired from trying VoF! High 6b?

The moves left at the top of the groove are brilliant, great finger edge to swap on, then almost run out at the top

Took a good while to commit to the move into the groove, easy once I did. Found the traverse tricky but perhaps went too low. Happy to battle through and get this.

very intersesting top section misses a vital hold a few times so i had to jam myself back into the crack, very technical jamming! Will do route again to improve my jamming technique!
