Getting back to stiffer grades, slowly. This was a great confidence-booster today.

This was a pretty weak couple of goes on the first sequence. The route looks very good, but I might pencil this one in as an aspiration.

Top rope with (much) rest, but finally got up this with a bunch of coaching. Sequency as heck.

I see some potential nice sequences here. This climb would probably be a bunch easier if Kym Campbell would stop breaking off the holds.

Gah, not all all the glorious pinkpoint that I saw in my head. Took a big fall past at the middle ledge and decided to swear off lead climbing for life.

Flailing around on a brand-new climb is always hilarious. Couldn't make it past the crux. This one feels sequency as heck, and very hard on the fingertips.

Got this dialed. Very close to a clean ascent today, just some carelessness on the undercling move. I should probably stop putting off the lead and get this done.

Two tries on top rope, neither clean but both better than last time. Let's get a clean shot, then try the lead.

Got the first crux worked out at last. Couple more sessions for a clean ascent, maybe. Lead ascent remains a daunting prospect

Doable, but gonna take some work. Would probably go easier if I didn't try to climb it a different way every attempt.

The crux requires finesse to get through, not to mention a couple of serious crimps. After that, it changes up into a slab requiring balance and nerve. Recommended!

Pretty hard for the grade, with a strenuous crimpy crux move to get through in the middle. A cryptic sequence, but at least we worked it out this time.

A tough one - once you get through the balancy start, the rest is hard climbing to the last clip. Nowhere to rest, and more than one difficult move to pull off. Like bouldering, but 15m tall!

I found this fairly cryptic to work out, with at least two ways to tackle the final move. One for the 2015 clean-ascent list!

Tried this on lead, took a look at the crux: NOPE. Cheated my way to the top after we set up a top rope.

Challenging, dynamic and technical. Good technique, powerful grip and nerves of steel will get you through the crux. One day.

Good clean fun, climbing up over the jagged flakes of gouging. Well-protected, but don't slip.

No idea how to make that 2nd clip cleanly there's nothing to grip or stand on. Wimped out after the fourth clip anyway. This climb is haaaard.

Tricky second bolt is the crux, 8m runout after the fourth adds excitement.
