I hope the tree at the top is in, because I clutched it as if I was drowning ...

Tough at the top this one, pumpy and steeper than I expected! Just held on to pull myself over the top on the loose block.

Trying the one of the routes here as my first ever sport route before this was not a good idea... Good route though :)

Messed up the top sequence so got tired and slumped onto a bomber hex, then just about got up at 2nd attempt. Grade correct if you do it right.

Absolutely butchered it so had to let Gav do it and then I seconded it (dogged). Had lots of trouble with the final move/jams. Not good!
