Got to the crux somehow with plenty of beta. Managed to get one quick draw in the lower off. Added another to get the rope up. Last move is hard.

Third go at this one. Plenty of encouragement & beta from the Aloft Gang. Crept up slowly. Somehow arrived at the top crux. A strong right hand required, feet up & go. I sort of got there. x

Always avoided this because of its name. But actually the reach at the top ain't too bad at all. Back to lead it soon.

The bottom part is where you dream of being big and the top is where you are BIG. All the stars!! Such fun moves, first the mono and sidepull and really balancing footwork while you're pulling hard then a fantastically committing finish.

Once you have the sequence of moves this climb is fine. The first move and the last are the hardest. The last one is made easier by getting the top jugs and putting the right foot high
