Got this on the redpoint today. Quality route. Final crux holds were a touch greasy which added a little spice!

jezb1 08/Apr Lead dog

Well good! Steady to the crux which is on thin and sharp holds. Clean next time I reckon :)

Harry Chaplin 02/Apr Lead RP

2nd go. Great route!

Clean to last bolt on TR. lowered off before last section as belayer was in danger of being washed away. Curse you Poseidon!

So close! Fell off a move or two off better holds in the top break, good safe fall. Might have got it if fresh? Not much rest before the second go but got to the half rest below the crux in decent shape, managed to get a bit back and did the crux section fairly easily. Thought this was easier than Night Glue but it's higher in the graded list, then again it's exactly my style - crimps on a vertical wall.

Amazing route, the crux moves are awesome! So close to the on-sight! Fell after the crux next go, then fell on the crux on the further 2 goes...

1st red point, hard crux! Not overly sustained but I think the difficulty of the crux made it feel harder than axle attack? Cool climbing though!

Thought I had muffed the sequence and made a FEEBLE throw for the last hold on the tricky climbing. Climbed first red point. Lesson: MUst try harder and go for that 'one last move' - everytime, especially when the bolt is at your waist Matt!

After 3 rp attempts at muscle beach felt quite strong still until i pulled on this. Then i felt knackered, and it was going dark but just turned on the tenacity and went for it. Had seen people do bits before so not a true onsight but near enough. fingery and sustained quality. superb.

Wicked moves on sharp holds. Will return with some fresh skin....

farmus21 10/Mar/10 Lead dog

The lower moves flowed nicely and the crux passed with a little huffing and puffing. Fell before the last clip. Was certain of an onsight. Oh well, let skin repair and return.
