Pumpy little number this, was good if a little slippy with sweaty hands.

The hardest 6C+ I have done! I enjoyed this climb but took me 3 goes and even then I didn't think I would get it!

Worthy of 7a this is seriously pumpy! Back survived, beer earned.

Spartacus Crag Took me ages just to get the bouldery start reaching up to poor pinches from the pockets was a bit of a stuggle. after several attempts. I was wrecked by the time I got past the second clip clean. some pretty cool moves in the middle.

great climbing - steep and pumpy for the grade. damp feeling grey rock at top wasnt so helpful.
