12m. Climb the wide crack out of the bog to a 4 m thread runner. Swim upward through the rounded overhanging offwidth to the top. Desperate.

Finally got to the top!! Took two falls back down to the ledge, did the full crux w/o falls in the end! A bit easier facing the other way. Wet and slimy on top after thawing from frost. Dog frustrated a sheepdog in a very one sided game of fetch.

Attempted lead. Absolute ball, another full body fight, no finger strength necessary. Attempted to do it apparently the wrong way round (facing left instead of right) and spent an hour shuffling up and down the same foot and a half of rock - each time I got higher I would run out of steam and slither down or fall out. One bigger fall held by a dragon 6. Got some extra beta from Flavio towards the end of my attempt and had one last go. Amazing fun, hope to come back and complete! Still aching two days later.

Exciting offwidth thrutching!

probably the hardest E1 in the world, got my hands on the top of the crag but could go no further. A cracking route!
