Had a couple throws at this, but was pretty tired and tips were sore so my heart wasn't really in it

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.

Ermagerd. Thin, bunched and sharp with crap feet. God knows how Cazza sent this thing. Not sure I could ever get through the traverse.

Thought we'd have a few throws at this under headlamp to finish. Several very close attempts later it was Vulcanology that finished us.

V6 Vulcanology

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!

V8 Body Darma

Another day another Darma. Felt okay on the crimps with tape for about two attempts then tape just became a hindrance. No tape felt good for about five more attempts which is all it took to put a hole in my middle finger. Right foot kept popping. I need Scotty to sort me out some edges. I'll be back.
