This was my first dinbren masterclass in setting your expectations low or getting crushed. Good to come back and blast through that crux again. 4 laps for training.

Finally. Disgustingly powerful 3 moves becomes 6a/b climb to the top.

Ticked second go, good moves lead to the hard crux, short & sweet!

Managed to stick the crux all the way from the start but fell off the easier moves above. Getting closer

Took a few tries. The crucial undercut was wet but I think main issue was just getting back into dinbren style - its all about where you put your feet!

2nd go, should have flashed it!

Project, all moves sorted, pulling up from undercut seems to be the crux

Crux felt desperate but it was a zillion degrees.

tricky (on 1st acquaintance) crux but good climbing

ksjs 24/Aug/08 Lead RP

felt straightforward but crux does require some strength. another good Dinbren route

matt30987 ?/Oct/07 Lead RP

This is what climbing as Dinbren is about, steep and overhanging

great route- finally found a way to do the crux that isn't completly desparate (thanks Ali)
