Sport 7c Punishman park

Bit nervous, felt good but couldn’t slot the crux knee bar, fell off pissed but knowing I could do it.

Sport 7c Punishman park

4 other people working the route sharing the start resulted in a torturous 2 hour wait to get back on. So nervous I felt sick. Fell off at the crux. Felt like it wasn’t possible again.

Sport 7c Punishman park

Had already resolved I wouldn’t send. Went up for one more go. Climbed it perfectly, fell off on the very last move. Gutted.

Putting the draws in was hard work. Was hoping a couple of weeks at Cèüse would have pumped up my endurance but it felt harder than last time I tried it!

Climbed like a wanker tbh. Just calm down and it’ll go y’a dick head.

Didn’t think I’d get another go at this! First go was just kinda sussing/flailing again. Felt hard.

Sport 7c Punishman park

After witnessing a 12 year old onsight it sans kneebars I though I’d better half another crack! Got about half way, fell a few moves below a decent rest. Felt achievable in maybe another 2-3 goes maybe?

Really nice warm up.

Sport 6c+ Socoa

Probably one of my most stressful climbing experiences in recent history. My belayer was first struggling with the 'biner/GriGri (in hindsight a sign of things to come!) then short-roped during the crux sequence and then asked "do you want more slack at the anchor?" despite me not being at the anchor, nor signalling I was at the anchor. Finally, I pulled over the bulge near the top and heard something I construed as "off belay" (I later found he was saying "out of sight", but I couldn't really hear due to said bulge), I then preceded to climb (although I thought was soloing) to the anchor while shouting lots of profanities. Quite the experience!

Sport 6c+ Socoa

Came down from my first incredibly stressful attempt, pulled the rope and went straight up for another crack. Think I was still pretty pumped (more from stress than climbing intensity) and still fell at the crux. Oh well some kind of good conditioning I guess.

Made a new crux much lower than my flash attempt, which was a bit disappointing. But nice stretch after the very pumpy 7c!

Sport 7b Elichat botté

Cruisy this time, basically all mobility and very little pulling. First 7b in France!

Absolutely mega! Goes forever, brutally steep, kneebars for days! Felt hard on my first go, but keen to proj!

Putting the draws in, still couldn’t figure out the start. 🤷‍♀️

Sport 7b Mission Sheppard

Thrashed myself and my skin on start, must’ve tried every combination of holds possible. Faucher Antoine just walked up it. Apparently I need to work on my footwork as I don’t think I’ve ever been shut down at this grade before.

Sport 6c Flore del fango

Fell on second pitch due to poor foot placement. Very much my anti-style, actually pleased with how I climbed it despite foot slip. Maybe I’m learning how to use my feet!

Weird pressing and mega high feet! Came pretty close to the flash but fell right at the last “hard” bit. Will go next time!

Super bouldery crux, good holds but difficult to move between them. Flailed about for a bit before committing to my first beta. Putting the draws in.

Really weird start and fairly green finish with actually nice climbing through the middle. Would probably go in 1-2 tries if the bottom was possible. 😂
