1st RP today, really surprised! Glad I checked the moves out enough before the redpoint, so much easier than last visit to the crag, but I guess it wasnt't end of session unlike last time. First 7b!

Was nervous dogging this and not having my safety net of Top Roping. Was pleased Llin pushed me to have ago. Think I could have comfortably made it to the rest in a one-er had I extended the 4th runner. Made good progress on the head wall. Got through quite a bit of crux in a one-er so pleased.

3rd go felt good. Blew it on the last move of the headwall. Missed a foot I think. Heartbreaking! Had one more go but totally powered out, worked out some slightly better beta though. Felt ok for first day back on a rope this year. at least I know I gave it a solid try.

Been wanting to attempt a flash for ages - got good beta and just stuck the final move to the jug. Fun, wide and stretched out moves. Fun day, culminating in some idiot tourist calling the coastguard out for us and getting a ticking off from them.

1st RP today after messing around on it earlier in the week. Lower wall is a means to an end. Upper bit past the break flows like a well set boulder problem. Probably worth a couple of stars for the cool moves.
