2nd go of the day after falling on the low crux. Previously had a brief go last year sometime. Fun climbing on good holds.

Ripped half a pad off on the wet tufa pinch ... Put me off a little bit... But it's a fantastic line and should have gone in the first session!

Looking up at the chains from the ground, I would almost certainly jump in to deep water from the problems. Great route.

Two goes working then three redpoint attempts after that! Probably first consesus 7c for me and in a session which I was quite pleased with! Definitely low in the grade.
