Found this blind, sharp, fingery, steep and hard and had to have a couple of goes to get it.

1st RP hard move past the second bolt and did a huge lank move after the 4th bolt to get the jug

stp 03/May/17 Lead

Went too far R on crux. No chalk and bolt marking the way had been chopped.

I thought the crux was up to the second bolt but may be that's just because I had slightly cold fingers. The section through the bulge is goey but it's all there. A bit of direction from Tim which way to go.

End of day = boxed as. Not very hard really

Lloyders 16/Apr/13 Lead RP

Still used a wire at the top as it's a bit of a way from the final bolt to the peg. Good climbing

Shit: This felt hard and devious. Not sure how quick you're allowed over into the original?

Third go. Made up as it felt impossible first go. Got me a bit psyched for sport.

Difficult to onsight with a trickyish sequence. 3 goes to get it but happy considering my lack of actual time on rock recently!!

1st go: dogged to warm up, trouble with move round bulge. placed 2 wires between top bolt and peg. 2nd go: that move above the 1st bolt felt fairly full-on, drop it and it might not be very nice (best done with first 2 bolts clipped) - proper concentration required. good climbing despite the poor bolting.

Bolts dangerously spaced at the start

First RP. Definitely ** but needs rebolting

Dogged, as was the theme of the day. A hard lock off move on the second crux saw me off several times. Also the first bolt is dangerously high and nearly took a bad fall onto the ledge below when moving dynamically to the clipping jug. Beware.
