Rockmonkey1977 15 Jun, 2019 Lead dog Nice route, albeit some loose rock- mostly on the lower half. Spent ages working the first crux (Will’s solution was the best), but it still felt pretty hard. As a result I didn’t really work out the upper crux as I didn’t think I’d fancy a Redpoint burn. Changed my mind after a crag nap, got through the first crux then fell at the second as I was somewhat clueless! Will have to return another day for the tick as the tanks were too empty for another go.
