24 ★★ Godhead's Lament 25m, 11 — Fri 23rd Mar 2018 — Very Good
Repeat ATTEMPT in the rain as a warmp, to get the route prepped for Neilio to flash. Surprised myself by only falling off once, after linking the majority of the hard stuff and chalking and cleaning as I went. Pumpy and funky, with some average rock (for Bare Rock).
21 ★★ Yesterday's Hero 45m — Fri 23rd Mar 2018 — Very Good
Another lap. This time seconding Neil (clean) in rather wet conditions. The weather didn't detract too much, despite it being a techo slab. Long. — with Neil Monteith
26 ★★★ Agony and Ecstasy in Eight Parts 180m — Fri 23rd Mar 2018 — Mega Classic
Repeat attempt (sort of). Pitches 3-6 with Neil, with all manner of crazy weather. P3 - Fell off a few times at the slab crux in the rain before I stopped trying to follow Neil's chalk, and climbed the line of the bolts (at grade 21). Short and tough for a slab. P4 - 2nd Clean. Gripping on 2nd, but still a great pitch. My desire to climb this section of rock was what actually motivated me to start developing this entire multi! Hard techo traverse under a cramped roof, an engaging roof turn, and a long, pleasant, aesthetically appealing slab above. P5 - 2nd Unclean. I'd forgotten how hard (and sequency) this roof pitch is. Managed the first half of it clean on 2nd taking the draws off, but the two main cruxes took me a bunch of falls to remember. Super-duper boulder. P6 - Dog. After Neil bailed. I went up to finish the pitch. Clean to the crux, then a bunch of falls at the crux before I worked it out, then clean to the top. A brilliant, beautiful pitch of powerful climbing up a BLACK STREAK! — with Neil Monteith
★★★ Rise of the Masked Lapwing - PROJECT PAUL 30m, 15 — Fri 23rd Mar 2018 — Mega Classic
Lead attempt in damp conditions (not ideal for steep-sloper jugging). Took quite a while to work out the moves to leave the corner and turn the blunt arête, then a bunch of semi-scared falls/rests along the traverse line to Green Spandex, before running out time, back-jumping and bailing. Outrageously cool. A lot of effort to climb though. Kinda scary. — with Neil Monteith
