20 August with Rupe: sorted the start now. Committed to finger lock in slot and reached next hold but it was slopey grease so i jumped. 15 August 2016: Account open. Got to slots first go then chickened out, and there is MILES to go from there. Second go fell off low crack and just missed ledge. More care needed!

Big seas, wet boots!

Ally Smith 08/Aug/15 DWS dnf

Reversed a move, cut loose and jumped - wasn't that pumped, just intimidated. Fall was fine - need to go back

Epic, forgot I'd done this before until I was at the bottom when it all came flooding back, felt just as good as the first time!

Outstanding route. 2nd go after a flailing at the start first attempt. Pretty gripped, the chuck of the top side-pull was a life-affirming moment. V pleased to get the send.

Had some really good technical beta which helped a great deal. Was really tired after all the other climbing but ploughed on, latchin the top hold was sweet!
