Surprised myself by getting to the third clip first go, thought I was going to struggle with the start. Took a while to work out the move up to the cave, but found a way in the end. 2nd go a bit rubbish - sore fingers!

Got pretty high on the OS - fell in the last layaway before the crack. Subsequently failed to make substantial progress at it. Tired at the end of the day?

Quick go figuring out some new beta for the move to the crack. Linked it from the undercuts lower down to the top. Wet holds didn't help. Had one redpoint but I was too tired by then.

Third session, three redpoints, boiling hot again. A new high point. Got through the crux on all three attempt's. Fell twice pulling through into the jug next to the crack and a foot slip once cost me the route! It'll go but definitely need more endurance, the moves on there own I'm finding easy.

Luke Owens 25/May/12 Lead dog

Second session. 4 redpoint attempts. Fell latching the jugs near the 4th clip. Climbed overlapped clean twice.
