To work the moves, found it super hard

Tired after doing the Bernia in the morning, and not very warmed up. Fell off the last hold, right on the chains. The start is bouldery, fair rest in the middle before the sustained wall to a final long reach off a bad pocket for a jug. Hard going really, i was pumped at the top. Got it 2nd go 10 mins later

Complete dog. More or less hauled myself up one move at a time.

Dogged up with a clipstick to put the draws in and remember the sequence. After belaying David, got on and ticked it first go (today) on a top rope. Now just got to lead it. Sadly rain came in and ended the day.

Dogged up with the clipstick to set up a top rope. Next time I fell from the last move. Next time the same. 5 attempts, each getting farther away. So near yet so far.

Still can't quite do the route clean. Resting jugs were full of water making it hard to rest. Something to tick next year
