should have flashed, sent 2nd go without using the left hand crimp, didnt know it existed until after.

Took a few tries to realise pulling on the pebble and crimp was futile.Mega problem with monster jams at the top.

Only took three attempts, got given good beta from Dennis. Good moves with good holds till your established on the slab, then it is just a case of trusting your feet and pulling on a pebble till you get to the crack. Good route

Maddie 17/Apr/16 Sent dnf

So close! So many moves because I can't reach anything. Next time! Really good tho. Dropped near the top several times so safe with a few mats

Would have flashed but didn't take a chalk bag so jumped off. 2nd go. Best boulder i've done in ages, balancy, delicate and slightly highball with 2 pads. Psyched! 3*+

Didn't expect to do this! Just had psyche left over after Cave Prob and decided to have a go, used high feet not big low one. Only just reached crack and jug, and couldn't jam the crack as it was too wide! 7A ***
