Was raining, so slipped off clipping the 2nd bolt. Lowered off and went straight back up.

Better than Peter Pan to the left of it. I just couldn't do the boulder problem for the 7b proper route so settled for this.

Bolts are pretty far left on this and getting below the second one is pretty hard work much easier to climb above it and clip

Fell after my handhold crumbled away. Bolts being far left made for a pretty painful smash into the wall. Not the best end to the day..

Wedi cael mwynhad o'r rhan a ddringais, sef hyd at tua hanner ffordd. Daeth diwedd i'r dringo oherwydd lleoliad yr angor i dderbyn gafael y top-rope. Fodd bynnag, dyma gwyneb yn rhoi cyfle i fwynhau ac edrychaf ymlaen at ei gwblhau.

One very annoying rest required at top. Delicate footwork required to get second to top bolt, a very very good problem.

Lee's first 6a+ lead wich he did onsight in fine style, he looked even smoother on this than the 6a+ to the left. The first two bolts are really awkward to clip being so far over to the left, need to keep your head!
