Shot 11 - I finally got it! I can't friggin believe it! Also this was my first time actually pulling over the lip and standing on top - I was always saving that for when I got it clean... because I knew what had to come next. This time I stood on top and screamed my elation across the valley, asked for 2m of extra slack and... "I'm gonna jump!". There was a funny moment with one foot stepping on mid-air and my weight just PAST the turning back point my brain went "nup I don't want to do this"...

Shot number 10, main purpose was to put the gear on. Surprisingly I got all the way past the 2nd crux - I thought I might have it this shot! But then I fell about 8m before the top on some medium-grade moves, oh well. Got the gear on anyway.

Attempt #9. Second shot today I was a lot more tired/dehydrated so didn't recover as well on the jugs as I did on the first shot. Again breezed through the first crux (new beta is awesome) and fell at the second. Also plenty of times after that, haha! Really feel like I have this route very soon - maybe next time I'm there! Came down cleaning the route this time.

Attempt 8. New beta for the first crux! - get foot up to smear then throw with left hand, not right. Worked wonderfully twice in a row. I got really excited holding the break as I thought maybe I had it in the bag. Unfortunately made a mistake at the fat-fingered-crux and fell, then fell again on the easy moves just after that. Won't make the same mistakes again.

Attempt 6 and 7. Fared much better than earlier in the trip, just the first crux to figure out - can do the rest no problem (fat-fingered-crux is a bit of a percentage-move but not so much as the first crux).

Attempt 4 after a 3-year break. Amazing route as always. No gear on the route, so went up this time to put the gear on. Didn't get past the first crux but lucky Hood did. Left gear there for 2 weeks total.

2nd pitch only.

Fell from the very, final move on Saturday (6th time on it), then got it Sunday (7th go on it)...surprisingly, very seedy from the night before... The jump off the top was almost as good as doing the route itself...don't short-change yourself!

An outrageous route. 2nd try after dogging. Bit of a marathon. One of my forearms blew up solid and I camped out for 15 mins at the last rest before it went down. Very satisfying.

First day on this awesome route (talking top pitch only here, will get the bottom out of the way later). Romain got it clean third shot, couldn't believe it! I can do all the moves, just got to spend a couple weekends on it and it'll go. FYI for anyone leaving a draw on the first bolt - watch the webbing where it rubs against the rock, it was looking pretty burred...

10th lap, 7th "shot". [1&7] placed gear. [2] hot sunny dog (& broke rib). [4&7] to crimp crux. [6] to FF crux. [3,5,8,9] past both cruxes to within 5-8m of the top ... probably should've refined this section sooner than lap 9, durrr.

placed gear then 4 more shots over a few days. linked past both cruxes a few times, highpoint was 3 hand moves below final break - with a broken rib as I later found out! I am still not a pumper though
