Fell twice on the hard bit but got it eventually. The jug was just out of reach so had to faff with some pretty poor holds and an insecure heel-hook, but pleased to get it in the end just a few minutes before the rain started.

Third go, very hungover

RKirke 19/Aug/17 Lead G/U

Hard move, especially when half the holds are sopping wet.

Way too hard for me! Couldn't use any slopers out left as they were sopping wet, ended up going up the regular version instead.

Couldn't figure out how to reach the jug, aided the crux in the end! (1 pt Aid)

Impressive lead display of brute force by Alice (and admittedly a modicum of technique).

backed off the lead 2 yrs ago, then 2nd Pete, who styled it and showed the way to go. went for it today with goodly encouragement from Brian.. and 3 trustee link cams in::))

Solid gear and one hard move, no difference if you're short just commit to throwing for the jug! Shame it's so short lived

TwofoZeus 27/May/17 Lead dnf

Struggle to let go of the right hand to throw for the jug, fell twice on the ledge so gave up before i hurt my feet any more.

Another fall of the day, can probably attribute this to the self-inflicted allergic reaction from a rogue cashew/pistachio masquerading as a peanut. ASDA, I'll see you in court.

One very butch move - I wasn't strong enough! Tried the lead, handed over to Felix and then couldn't second it either (went up Levitation instead). 5c move I reckon.

Cheeky nut throw to protect the crux. "Bomber placement-like a boss" was the exact quote!

Very tough few moves through the roof up to the flake, feels more like 5c to me! But all well protected. Pleased with the onsight.

awesome moves in the crux 5b, but i think more like a 5c as very commiting and technical - great fun. even in 70mph winds and rain!!!
