An outstanding line with devious and powerful climbing across the roof below the B.N.I slab.

Got so close so many times but couldn't manage to actually do it. Was rocking over once and my heel popped, another time I didn't have the pinch right and came off. Felt close a lot of times but need to probably relax a bit and just wait.

Very mixed session and very short session today, had a kneebar pad and did it to the second pinch before rocking over but fell when readjusting but it was so warm and completely still that nothing felt particularly good. Got absolutely eaten alive by midges and couldn't really climb with them so bailed to TCA, only had a few attempts.

Good session today, did the rock over and slab twice. The slab wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. Also did the link from where you would be once you've taken out the kneebar to the rockover but my heel popped off as I was coming over. Homemade kneebar pad didn't work, need to find a real one.

Great conditions today, did from where you would be after taking the knee bar out to putting the heel on but couldn't find it. Eventually found the heel a couple of times and flicked the left hand to the sloper and right hand to the next but feels too precarious without more pads and/or a spotter. Need to get a knee bar pad then try and link it to the heel then give it some big goes.

Had another few goes on this, had a knee bar pad which worked really well, was able to do the kneebar move fine and take it out as well. Need to get used to the moves again though

Second session back on this - made a kneebar pad and the move with kneebar to the crimp went every time, need to figure out how to take it out though. Good session but it was really warm!

First session back on this - pretty much did all the moves except rocking over onto the slab. Having difficulty taking the kneebar out after getting the right hand crimp and also taking the wedged right foot out to swing the left foot over onto the slab to rock over. Feeling good on it and perfect weather today!

Nice, no really hard moves but complex positions and blind holds

Second session on this. Got the move to the first sloper but can't figure out what to do with my right foot to get the next. Apart from that no new progress. Sore triceps from new circuit training on Monday, not sure if it had any effect.

First proper session on this. Did all the moves up to the first sloper on the lip except the moving from the knee bar to the crimp on the Arête. Great fun on this problem but definitely feels like it would take a long time to send.

Took several months, a bit of weight loss and an epic hangover to finally send it! Psyched...

Yeeess! The one thing in my life that has taken the most dedication and time. Much harder than anything I've done till now and maybe the hardest I ever climb. Easily 25 full-on sessions on it, maybe more. Extremely happy....but need something new now!
