First session. Led in 3 overlapping parts. Last moved too reachy for me to do it the obvious way and so I have to use two poor intermediate holds

Great climb, struggled to work out the top between last draw and chains. Going back with new beta. Defo one to work towards!

Its a bit pumpy and very easy to blow the last few moves. I think it was my 5th attempt.

phillipwright 14/Apr Lead RP

Amazing climb, really nice heel hook through the flake

mop449 14/Apr Lead RP

Finally done. Guiness and a pub lunch was key beta. This was my long term goal for such a long time. I'm absolutely bloody chuffed to finally get it.

mop449 11/Apr Lead dog

New high point today. Gutted to drop the very top moves.

Such a cool climb, would love to come back one day and try and do it for reals!
