finally did it!!!! had quite a few sessions on this over a few years! felt strong today and consistently got to the second side pull, took a few goes to figure out how to get the left foot up. fucking well psyched. amazing problem amazing connies! felt 7b+ today but maybe 7c for the shorter or warmer conditions.

Spent a good few sessions on this over the years. Got close last year, with a bit of a fight. Good to see the huge strength gains. Great problem.

Nemesis. Felt weightless today.

3rd go today, but have been trying this for years. Felt almost easy in the end, brilliant moves, such a classic problem. Stoked to see it finally go down!

3rd go today but tried and failed last year. Conditions were very similar but the climbing felt way easier. Nice when you get such an objective sign of progression.

Always wanted to do this, has to be one of the quintessential hard gritstone problems (or at least it felt hard to me!!)

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing 10/Jan/16 Sent dnf

Should really have gone in a session, but pretty tired from the past few days. There's probably a lesson there, but at least they've been a good few days so failure today is a good thing really...

2nd go in the warm, no friction just psyche!

grey wolf 05/Apr/15 Sent x

Subtle moves. Never too hot for the gritstone if there's enough psyche!

Joe Lawson 19/Jan/15 Sent x

Stuck the first move a few times...

In a short session. A rare (only?) burn off of McManus. Psyched!

about 5th go today, very happy with this, felt easy when it went, as normal. Still think 7c, harder than Terrace!!

nathanlee 08/Dec/12 Sent x

2nd go (of my one millionth session)

BenNorman 23/Nov/12 Sent dnf

fell off getting foot up for last move, awesome problem, i reckon 7c feel reasonable, harder than terrace

al123 18/Nov/12 Sent

Sound. Couldn't touch this previously but today went fairly fast. Really cool problem. Softish 7B+
