Forgot how good this is!

Sustained. I spent too much time between 4 and 5 clip and got really pumped but still made it to the top. Good route. Not easy.

1st try putting clips in today. Perplexing moves. Got a slight pump, perfect route for the end of the day.

Tricky scary crux move ... think might have been a bit hungover - couldn't work out on lead, went fine later on top rope but still hard for grade!

Got too pumped to get up the loose crux (thought it was the 6a beside it...)

Got on this thinking it was Shit Happens, Actually. Great route but not the straight forward warm-up I was expecting.

Second visit to this climb after a failed lead attempt last year. Fell again on my first go!! Got it clean second attempt and went a slightly different route, staying right at the blank bit...

Very nice. Friable bit in the middle is Ok.

Going by the old Rockfax, I think I headed up this rather than 'Shit Happens Actually'. Took one rest. Hard at the time.

Rockmonkey1977 25/May/14 Lead dog

First attempt dogged then clean on top rope, lacking bottle!

Mistook the route for Shit Happens, Actually. Finished it eventually, but with battered morale.

Certainly not 6c, hard 6b or maybe easy 6b+

Climbed by mistake, possibly. Thought it seemed hard for a 'soft' 6a...

enjoyable, nicely sustained. 6b+ in rockfax.

Using the 2000 Rockfax book and thought this was shit happens, I was expecting an 'easy in the grade' 6A! Not very enjoyable, lots of crumbly rock, especially in the middle section.

Great route! Pulled off a block half the size of my forearm but managed to stay on anyway.

Spent too long on the crux fingery section failing to spot the holds and figure the sequence. Once this was nailed not tough for the grade.

Grabbed anchor bolt at top on last move. Thought I was climbing 'Shit Happens, Actually' the 6a to the right!
