UKC Logbook Description
Start on the break of Banana Arete, drop down into Banana Finger Direct and then reverse along Banana Finger to finish. Finishing up the Direct is an easier variation....

Took a while to get the sequence. Fun line while others were trying banana finger.

Reversing right into Banana Finger. Never done it this way before. Nasty hand swap on that crimp - much harder than continuing up the Direct. Font 6b/+ as described here going straight up, 6c to reverse BF?

First go off the day. V cold fingers took a fair bit of abuse in the process.

Nicer finishing directly up the finish instead of back along to the start of the banana trav!

Didn't know where this finished so dropped off from the good holds on BFD. Had been trying to match and go right to the next/previous hold on BF. Annoying as there would have been no problem finishing BFD from where I was. Oh well.

Boxing day, felt fat and weak but managed to get a better sequence for my first font 7A of the year. Straight up finish. The alternative felt nails!
