AndrewJamesCherry 26 Jun, 2014 TR dog Another Session on Spong. Can now link everything up to the dyno - which I now cannot do! 1 step forward, but two steps back.... Some new stiff shoes and some self belief may well lead to a clean ascent soon.

shed_hed 15 May, 2014 TR dog Great route! Have to switch from steady techincal climbing, to all out explosion for the dyno, back to steady climbing again for the last moves. Got all the moves fairly quickly except the dyno. Got as close as fingertips touching the edge of the hold and happy with that for a start. Tried the rock over alternative for the dyno but couldn't even move on it! Feels very climbable with all the moves going first or second go. It is very sustained though and linking it all together (especially the dyno!) is bot going to be easy. Looked well bolted apart from perhaps the first bolt.
