_m.cox_ 18 May Lead dog Good session back, new beta for the high crux is still hard but much more doable on the link. If I put some effort into getting the power endurance it could happen. Crux RH crimp has changed but dosent make much difference. The slot high up though is now a large, square edged jug, good enough to shake out on. This may affect the grade I guess. Still a damn good route though.

_m.cox_ 17 Sep, 2016 Lead dog Again in two sections, different to last time. It would seem I only have 1 proper go, in me, per session. Will try not to leave it 2 months before coming back again. The season is drawing in, was a little cold on the hands today.

_m.cox_ 5 Jun, 2016 Lead dog Not too bad a first session on this, conditions were a bit humid but made a few good links. Keen to come back and have another look now I roughly know the sequence.
