Back to Seaview

Went to the Cave where i met Liam Desroy, his pal Dave, Jamie King and Kook. The strength is now returning, i felt good on Halfway and wasn't too far from crushing Trigger. Me, Liam and Dave went to the box and i felt good there too. I finally got through the Malteser again and got to the last move of my project link up- very pleasing. mind you i felt powered out so there is more work to be done as this move is the redpoint crux.
Went back down to Seaview with Jamie and the Cypriot, was very dry. I abbed down Flashpoint and pulled the loose hold off, luckily underneath a hold remained. The new hold is solid so hopefully this problem has now ceased evolving. This has made me very happy. Anyway i think the sitter will also go at about 7c+ if anyones interested. Matt was keen for the project line to the right, the same height as Flashpoint but with a bit of a highball ramble above it, i abbed down and cleaned a couple of holds for him and he went for it. He pissed the problem and was going for the top out when he pulled off a loose hold and came very close to falling. My and Jamies hearts were in our mouths. It was a gripping moment, he looked certain to fall. Much to the Cypriots credit he regained his composure, i ran to the top to help him top out and the FA was in the bag. A excellent effort on a cracking problem. i got the 2nd ascent soon after. He has amusingly called it Caught Between the Doyle and the Deep Blue Sea, it is around 7a+. Very good few days!
