First attempt at a 8a... Crux crimps at the top were a deal breaker, maybe in better conditions but probably not! Would be tough linking the other sections just to get to that point. Need a soft 8a to break into those 8's! 😉

Had on sight go but tricky to read and some hard moves at the top. Did next go, 1st RP

way too hot for this. Might need to come back in winter.

Tried this in 09 with Dan and we both bagged it off in favour of Orion. Got to the top today ok with a few rests. Some really polished shitty-nothing foot holds. Should have done it 6 years ago!!! Winter project...? :)

Got to final crux (the crimps) after doing most of the rest of it (just had to skip one hard reach lower down...might be another way to do it). Will come back and try it again, nice to see what an 8a feels like (hard).

Super fun route, not too steep and a mix of tufas and some small crimps! Climbed in 3 rests on attempt 5. It will go one day.
