A fine direct line up the buttress. Move up out of the alcove with difficulty and continue without much respite to join Back in Black at its good hold. Finish up Back in Black. © Rockfax

Two overlapping halves. Changed my beta for clipping the third bolt which hopefully will help - was terrifying the way i was trying initially...

Bit to tired 4th day on to lead today. Managed it in two halves with short rest. Should go o.k when fresh.

anguskille 05/Jun/15 Lead RP

clipped first two bolts and skipped the third- couldn't fit it into my sequence. I found this route tough, it took some work getting the beta but got it first go of the day, psyched!!

Almost, but not quite. Once i'd worked it out, dropped it twice from above the last clip. D'oh!

Amazing,so psyched,by far the hardest moves I've done on a route! Missioned over for a late night session on Sunday. Felt so good to clip the chains, Jimbo crumbled the clipping hold, which now wobbles, so stick clipped 3rd before starting.

Maybe just creeps in at F8a. Did a direct start using a poor slopey crimp and and a left hand undercut. Better than coming in from the right.

First foray. All the moves went pretty quickly. I Imagine clipping will be tricky, and so will the redpoint crux of Back in the Black...

5 tries over 2 days falling at the top! Then i agree to try and use the top undercut and i walk it - easier for the tall - Quality.

it was baltic up there today! just couldnt get fingers warm - worked traverse, about 10 gos before i did it. thats not progress 2nd go: worked crux, about 9 gos and couldnt reach crucial hold :( not such a great day

starting moves still proving very hard; in isolation these should be OK. im either missing something or a hold has come off. better conditions today and fingers not pulp by end. have though improved start sequence so maybe next time? linked a good section after start.

ksjs 21/Sep/08 TR dnf

too warm today but making the key hold near the start every time now. try again when a bit cooler

ksjs 18/Sep/08 TR dnf

good progress on initial moves. rest still ok though struggled with moves to get established at final overlap. hoping that 1 or 2 more sessions and a redpoint attempt will be possible.

ksjs 08/Aug/08 TR dnf

1 top-rope ascent, several attempts at each section, all moves completed except start section - wet footholds? short-lived but sustained, physical climbing
