Does putting your foot on the back wall count as dogged? Not a good enough route to warrant the effort.

Topped out too early - down climbed and finished properly, therefore can't take the clean onsight. Needed a clean on the higher holds, otherwise nice climbing which feels committing despite reasonable gear.

Anything above the old school start is really nice climbing. Didn't bother finishing direct.

Admirably lead by Dan, this one had some tricky sloping moves that probably wouldn't have felt so good if I'd not known I was on belay.

Good moves, but a bit too green and slopey to feel comfortable in today's heat
