my first granite climb and what a joy. standing and crimping on tiny flakes to gain nice ledges. well bolted except the last carrot seems to have popped out. this is no big deal as its on the easy slabby finish.

Downstream climbing areas Bomb Town
16 Chicken Wing to Bomb Town

We'd eye this off while bouldering underneath it so didn't have a great sense of scale and thought it would be mostly offwidth and I was keen due to my hand still not being ready for crimping. It ended up climbing quite nicely, it felt like a small segment of a much larger multi pitch

Whoa Nelly. This thing is really beaut. I really wasn't feeling the sketchy desperate RH dyno with the shitty right foot (not sure why) so tried a semi-static LH and was pretty surprised/stoked when it stuck 3rd go from the crimp rail. Tried a few times to do the full link and got close. Maybe next time

V1 The Crack

But then I found some energy for working the sit start to this crack. I kinda thought I'd done this back in the day, it's a super burly layback and if you can get through the first 50cm then it eases up. First go I did maybe 4 moves and was totally thinking I'd get it again the second time, and then it just shut us both down. Had a bunch of goes. Sit start might be more like V4-V6 as a layback, maybe less using some inverted offwidth foot jams and chicken wings if you can figure it out

I did the start to this a new way about 1m left, left hand on the high curved gaston, right right step and then beastly press through. I did the move but couldn't then link it to the top. Did the normal way

We tried super-gluing our finger tips which seemed to work pretty well consider how many attempts we had and didn't rage quit after the 3rd attempt. Its been yonks since I've been on this, I re-figured out how to hold the left crimp, the right is still fairly painful.

Was totally wrecked after a big day, we almost didn't stop but Ben was keen. After he had a couple goes I mentally geared up and had a solid cracker of an attempt, essentially did the crux, got my foot placement perfect, and was rocking over into the top out and just choked. Has another 4-5 goes but none quite as good and was then just smashed. Froth!

Perfect setup with 6 pads. Had a couple goes and fairly consistently getting to the same high point as before. Ben sent it which ramped up the stoke, I taped up my right ring finger which I think helped. Just managed to keep bumping my left hand as far as possible, got the right toe pulling hard and then just desperately jabbed it up and to my complete surprise stuck it. Woot! I am so super stoked with this send and this route is totally ace
