Finally stuck the move! 5th RP in total so second go today. the easy top section felt less easy after over gripping the jug in desperation not to fall off!

Managed to do the crux on a slack top rope a few times. Took a lot of working out but it should be all really to go... if my feet stay on

Cool bouldery start and nice up to the crux which fully stops me in my tracks. Need to top rope the crux I think

First go today with quickdraws in. Much harder than Senile Penile. Great thin balancy moves with a final slap to get through the crux.

I find this so hard. I had to relearn the moves but did find them a little easier than last time.

The crux of this gave me so much trouble that I thought I would have to give up. I luckily got it on my last attempt purely through stubbornness.

Climbed this best on the onsight attempt - got all the moves pretty quickly and it felt like I'd get it on the first redpoint attempt. Two redpoint attempts later and I came off at the same point mid way through the crux moves. Wasn't climbing as well on repoint (not getting my feet quite right as I did on onsight attempt). Will go with a little more work as it suits me. Great little route.

tricky,although once you have the moves its not too bad. If I hadn't had Dave's beta this could have been a much longer affair.

3rd go: done, just. Small but perfectly formed.

2 gos: very close, bit tired and bit dark.

Earlier effort on The Mask cost me this. At last a 7b+ that's 7b+ as opposed to 7c (see: Needle in the Groove and Rompsville!) So close to doing this, just lacked a bit of belief :( Short-lived but totally engrossing technical sequence gains Axle Attack - perfect moves. 1st go: dogged and worked crux, tough on first acquaintance. 2nd go: fell at start of crux but really didn't have moves right onto face sorted. 3rd go: didn't quite have the conviction of my sequence 4th go: so close to getting the diagonal crimp with RH, v quick rest then to top. Just didn't think I'd have enough beans for that go and when I was at end of crux I was like 'Didn't expect to be here' so I sort of surprised myself. Next time!

The crux is quickly passed... or not. The only route I've ever heard ding dong say he couldn't work out the crux of.
