Sport 7a Jurassic Shift

Crux caught me off guard a bit! Even down climbed to the ledge to try and preserve the onsight! Boxes myself into a corner and fell eventually. Tried pretty hard though.

Sport 6b+ Queen of a Distant Country

Fucking gripped the whole way! Something about Portland just gets me tense man! Was convinced I was gonna blow a hold again!

- with Neil Hardwick

Sport 7b+ Colours

Warm up! Perfect storm of great condys, Luke spraying me down and a dash of bum clenching. Pretty soft compared to other outings at the grade I’ve done but I’ll take it!

Sport 7b Hawaiian Pipeline

Putting the draws on, probably could have done it this go tbh. Think I had it in my head it was really hard from a few months ago.

Sport 28m Very Good
Sport 7b Hawaiian Pipeline

I rember it being twice as long and half the bolts, funny what a few months of climbing can do! Lovely route.

Spooged off the crux, but I think my sequence was wrong anyway so don’t think I would’ve got the e onsight.

Sport 7a Shit Route

Faffed at the crux for too long trying to figure, skipped the last bolt and pulled up to my face at the anchors, but couldn't find my feet and slipped off. So close.

Sport 17m
Sport 7a Shit Route

Total shambles, there's only like five important moves to rember on this route and I did all of them wrong and somehow got tangled in the rop, what a fuckwit.

Sport 17m
Sport 7a Shit Route

So glad I didn't fuck it up three times in a row lol.

Sport 17m
Sport 6b+ Kate

Was still in the sun and felt outragously greasey for the first few metres, the bigger the hold, the greasier it was, nearly punted off at around the third draw while being hilariosly pumped for the grade. Seemed to get better as I got higher. Probably quite nice when not in blazing sun. 🥵

Got in a pickle near the top and went left when it should have been right. But came good in the end. Dry fired off some sponge at the bottom too. Bit of a miraculous onsight really!

"Warm up" after not sport climb in like three weeks! Was just retriving the draws for someone who got stuck halfway up. Really cool route, actually felt quite do-able for me, but was quite spoogey in places. Definetly worth a revisit in better condys.

Actually topped this time, nice moves at the top but mentally I find that slabby corner middle section really tough.
