Missed a hold and made the crux significantly harder in the process! First red point attempt.

Put the draws in for LeeAnn who wanted a 7a experience, and this is a pretty good one to choose.

1st RP. Fell going through the bulge on the onsight. Found the crux tricky to read but with a sequence fairly straight forward.

Stuart William 23/May/16 Lead dog

Two goes. Missed a hold on the crux and fell. Too long in the sun for another go. Blowing a hoolie too which added something

J1_TOV 23/May/16 Lead β

Saw Stu run up it but didn't use his awesome heel hooking method. Instead used a finger snapping undercling pocket. Terrible!

lead it and got the moves sorted then felt too tired so stripped it on a top rope but got up clean! Next time......

Mat Welsh 20/Apr/16 Lead O/S

Tester day following four days with a virus, still feeling half bad - cracking route, good climbing all the way.

All went a bit pear shape at the crux. A hard move to stick first time.

One fall at crux again :-( It's looking like I'll have to come back again . . . . and I was hoping to go to Spain instead in the Autumn :-/

Giles Davis 24/Apr/14 Lead dog

Bah humbug. Fell at the crux move on my first attempt on lead. It looks like it's coming down to one move only, going for an upside-down pinch with my thumb.

Giles Davis 23/Apr/14 TR RP

Pleased with the effort I put in on this and felt I deserved to get it clean after trying so many crazy sequences at the hard and sharp crux. :D

Had a battle! Humid day so the yellow section was greasy. Finally managed to slither through after several falls. Superb climb but needs good conditions.

ok but harder moves (quite cruxy) near the top make this feel imbalanced - didnt think this was worth the local guides musical symbol

One rest a few days earlier.
