Still finding crux only just goes, sketchy footwork straight after to the rest, quite dropable on the traverse into next section off polished mini footholds + crimps, next crux (lunging) move to pocket break just about alright, just, same with next one, lunging too, could mess up my feet there too, highly likely to be too pumped on the finishing jugs to finish, think i can link ground through 1st crux to the good rest, on TR, at some point soon, but much more doubtful about in 1 to lower off. RP long long way off. Great to be getting the sequence a bit more wired though. Didn't want my shoulder to be climbing this hard today, but options became limited by showers.

On the RP attempt a crucial foothold came off on the move out of the corner which lead to a pretty epic fall and has now made linking that section pretty tricky for me at least! Gutted as it all felt like it was going smoothly! Thankfully no injuries to those below. Thanks again to Ruth for the super belay.

Climbed ok to b4, thats ezy. Took me some time to actually try hard enuf to get the movesstepping up from there, very sharp left 2 finger pocket. Rested every 2 or 3 moves through first bulge, crux, but can do. Found it quite stiff after bulge too, fingery + polished foot holds, and 2nd bulge like 6c? Will try work one day, Feels desperate now though. Even a bolt to bolt dog lead would b tough!

My friend pulled a block off this yesterday - approx 30cm^3 in size. On my first attempt I noticed that the foothold on the arete at the crux was moving, but didn't think it'd come away. Well, it did! While I was belaying. Luckily no one got hurt. So that foothold is now gone, but I don't think it makes the route much harder, at least with the beta I used; I sent it after the breakage.
