1m from the top. I apologize to all the onlookers and climbers for the swearing. Instead of placing gear in a locked off position should have gunned it for the home run.

Not worth the effort. A few metres of okay rock/climbing surrounded my lots of crud. Ending up off-route at the start didn't do much to add to the experience.

2nd shot. Went for the true onsight, had a bit of a battle putting on the crux draw, then fell off the only hard move on the route. Very flashable with a bit of beta for the crux. Would be 24 elsewhere, or probably gr23 for "the point" (based on the routes put up in the same era). Short, but punchy and awesomely exposed. Bring a few cams (0.3, 0.5) for the finale. Replaced the poxy belay sling.

Not necessarily easier than its neighbour... but certainly more straightforward stylistically. Better rock for the most part, and the pocketed finale -in particular- is great.

Didn't find most of this too hard... except for the start boulder, which I doubt I would've flashed had Neilio not chalked up the key hold. Good climbing in a stop-start manner, but the rock deteriorates as you get higher.

A psychological 19 (?) with grade 17 moves. The move to gain the corner is as committing as keeping the same password for all your internet services.

The exposure is relentless; the crashing sound of the waves acting as a background score in a scary movie, the suspect rock playing the role of the paranormal character luring you into its traps and the final well protected corner is the priest who wards off the evil but gives you massive rope drag in return. In the Deeps, there are no winners just survivors.

Beta: Double ropes if possible. A double rack of cams with singles of 2 and 3 is suffice along with wires. Lots and lots of alpine draws.

2nd shot today (4th total over 5 years) placing all gear. I REALLY do NOT like this climb, now I never have to do it again. I think I ticked this out of spite, rather than pleasure. Challenging climbing to the rest on sub-par gear and rock, then an annoyingly hard upper boulder where my fingers don't fit in any of the locks. The top crack is a sandy dawdle. IMHO the worse of the "classic" cracks on this wall.

Mega! The bottom section is less choss (and better protected) than many of its neighbours, and the super-sustained upper half is all-time classic. My first go today placing all gear ended in the final few moves (those sneaky, sneaky face holds ). No time/energy to strip it all and go again, so I did it on pre-placed. Proper psyched to do this placing all gear, though.

1st shot today, 2nd shot total (thanks for putting the gear on, Tom!) After finding this really hard previously, it was good to feel really strong on it today, despite not having "worked" any of it. Proper classic face climbing, super-sustained, hard cruxes, great rock. My favourite of the "harder" bolted routes at the Point.

3rd shot. Onsight ended between 2nd and 3rd bolt at the top. Stripped the route, then bungled the final moves like a punter. Stripped out all but the bottom 5 pieces of gear and sent 3rd shot. So, as the first few bits were still in situ, guess I can't claim a true red point Absolutely stellar upper half on crazy-shallow dimple-pockets. I found this really hard at the grade, but talking to others I may have been following the bolts at the top too directly. Regardless: brilliant.

The sun is low and the evening feels perfect. I still feel quite energised so keen to give a go to this classic. I haven't done it before so I'm being all cautious and rack almost two double racks (you don't need that much but surely it helps the mental game). I abseil down and as I reach the bottom I hear "hey maria do you mind top-roping it, the driver wanna go home?" So there I am, doing the heaviest most unnecessary top rope ever Really enjoyed the climb though, and satisfaction to send it!

"Trad 20 m" should read as "Sport 15 m with 3 carrots". I went down with a double rack, mistake, literally you need 2 cams for the whole climb. Pumpy boulder arete with a reachy/dynoish move if you're short, I fell, and Henry is laughing at me semi-bouldering with 2 racks on. Great climb though, would repeat. Not bad once you know the move.

Bit stressful to belay as you watch the leader placing extra gear bc the bottom traverse is quite sandy (badish rock). Awesome to climb it though. One hard move (heel hook helped me), cool exposure, and overall a great climb. It'd make for the perfect photo!

Book says it's unprotected and stiff. So I took the challenge. First 2/3 metres there isn't much (just get a good spot through the juggy starting flake) then got aboue 8 decent placements and some really nice moves. Yes the crack is bit dirty/sandy in places but you don't jamb much. Gear beta: few small wires down low in the thin crack. Few small cams and #5 was nice higher (in pockets/breaks). One thread, plus 2 bomber friends .5 & .75 in the handcrack section at top. Logging a flash as I did rap over it to assess placements
