25 Changes In Time

First climb of the day so I didn't want to crank the crux crimps at the start. Touched the holds once then pulled through to 3rd draw and refreshed my memory up to the roof. Had a few goes on the roof trying to imagine a bit of pump but once I got over my fear it felt not bad.

Took extra draws to swap out the rope shredders that I put on earlier as I thought I'd have to work out the start again with warm fingers and dog again. Went amazingly smooth and I ended up sending it without much worry or pump.

25 Lollapalooza

Had a good rest just before the roof, messed up my beta slightly but still hit the glory jug over the lip and somehow was too pumped to hold it, fell as I was swinging my feet right and got some nice hang time! Power endurance is a must for this thing.

Thought I might have been too pumped after the first go but I rested for over 3 minutes below the roof and made a few moves more efficiently and went all the way up and over the roof! Great climb!

Made it to upper roof again but while pumped a bit Gs heel felt really bad. Tried the sequence pumped twice and just lowered. Need to be pretty fresh to send but also warmed up. Hopefully next session and it doesn't become another "Mental as Anything"!

Was the only climb where the climber and belayer weren't getting wet. Didn't spend much time at the start on the crimps, jugged up and climbed to the anchor under the second roof as a warm up (top was wet)

Came quite close to the onsight, fell when I misread the sequence through the roof. Second go, came off at the last possible move, just didn’t quite have enough beans. Fitting business to leave unfinished, as I’m keen as to return.

Almost onsighted, sequence for the upper head wall needed a bit of massaging. Second shot felt easy. Awesome line, good till the last drop!
