Wussed out on the final move to the top, will be returning with a spotter and more pads at some point

Gordon W 30/Nov/17 Sent

Nice sequence before a committing top move

UnkArl 12/Nov/17 Sent dnf

Bottled it from the last move, will definitely go back when I’ve got more pads and a spotter.

Really fun slab with a good landing to boot. Small but positive edges for feet allow a big lunge for the final jug...

Brilliant. Had tried years ago. Did the top a couple of different ways.

Finally! All in the left foot. One of those ones where now I've done it, I'd hope to do it every time

Few attempts trying it and almost doing it static, but then first go doing it the pop method (this move wouldn't feel as hard if it was a lot closer to the deck) Great Problem.

Nearly had it, my foot slipped going for the final jug. Will come back with mats!

After 20+ goes on my own a few weeks Steve flashed it and used the small crimp up and left I hadn't seen, I went up and it feels easy that way. Right foot is the key

Fantastic. First proper V5 ont Grit. Not really worthy of a route grade, as its defo a boulder problem with mats. Get in!
