Work soooo hard and then came off, next time it'll go when fresh.

Ian Bell 11/Jul/15 Lead dog

3 goes but didn't quite manage it. Nice routes with no individual move that hard. Will blame failure on the heat!

Unsure about what I climbed - I was on the first route right of the 6b+ but that doesn't seem right according to the picture here. Still a nice route but felt about 6c?

Took a few goes to work out a sequence to get up on the main wall, but finally got something that worked. Will try to lead clean next time.

Quite a lot of seepage for the first third (although one of the driest on the crag). Took a fair few goes. Nice sequence.

Sheri's project again, which he led clean today... thoguht I'd top rope to see what it was like. First couple of goes were horrific; came back later after finish the 6b+ and it felt a bit better got more easily through the first few moves past first bolt... but then one hard 'stopper' move with horrible crimp. Hope to come back and work some more.
