βeta: Tough for the grade but great climb and worth the extra effort. Needed some quirky beta but it went third go. Nice end to the day!

βeta: Left arête easier than using the pinches. Initially on the first session I was trying to use the undercut and pinches to go through roof, then today worked alternative beta using a knee bar, bumping up the left arête. This proved More technical but less powerful. Took the crack pretty direct after working out the sequence.

βeta: Roof section at start felt tricky but with the right beta was fine. Top left hand finger pocket is small and sharp and I found a high right foot made the next lungy move much more secure. Lovely route

βeta: If you get the sequence right there are no 6b moves. However, the easiest sequence was not the first I tried...

βeta: 7B. I felt 3 english 6b moves which to me comes to about a good 7b. I liked it, but at a grade of 7b. Flashed on top rope.
