So happy to get this done. Took the afternoon off work when the forecast changed last minute (it’d been bad all week). I’d had three days of back to back training so was pretty goosed, but managed to pull through by the skin of my teeth. I could barely carry the pads out I had so little energy left afterwards. What a problem...

Didn’t know how I was going to do on this one, so was chuffed when I got to the final couple of moves before pinging off. Such a good problem.

So psyched to get this done! 1 session doing hard arete then a session in July then 2 sessions in decent connies. Felt desperate to begin with then worked some good body position beta and it all suddenly clicked. Class problem!

Got stuck on this problem for quite a while so was really psyched to get this ticked today whilst surrounded by clouds!

Ludicrously good problem on perfect rock. 6 or so attempts

Bit of a bogey problem over the past few years. Took me ages to get the toe hook to stick and since then I've fallen off the stand on a couple of occasions, including fumbling the flake last year... Great to tick it, though I can't help but feel it was down to the velcro connies! Chuffed

Fresh and breezy but some beta adjustment required given the temps, plus the first time I've put chalk on my thigh for a mid-move chalk up. Skin sooooo thin. Absolutely fantastic set of moves - best toe hook ever!

Rained on before I had a chance to try the link

About 5th session but went so easily today that i think its down to conditions. Best problem i've ever done!

Took a long time to sort decent beta for hard arete then it hailed (hard) and then i fell off the link a lot. Because it's such a great problem i'm quite glad i didn't do it because now i can go back!

Retro-send on a perfect day.
