Today I headed up to Space hunter wall (Cheddar) with the intention of mainly getting Coxy up Fornicator Simulator (8a) before the summer access ban comes in on friday and to have a little play on Galacticus (8b).
Matt racked up and started up the 8a. He was just planning to remind him self of the moves and replace the bit of tat extending the bolt on the lip. Once the tat was replaced he proceeded to crush the crux and finish putting the rest of the draws in with ease.

By the time Matt had stripped the draws out I was ready. I tied in and started up the bottom wall. I got into the roof and put the toe hook in, pulled the crux and as I hit the hold the toe popped. I lowered to the floor pulled the rope and set off again. This time I made sure the toe was in right, I matched the hold and pulled through the crux. I clipped the next bolt, a quick chalk then made the precarious move out to the arete. I just stuck it and moved onto the top roof. One last hard pull through the roof and I latched the jugs but only just. I was pretty pumped but super psyched to be at the chains.

All in all a good day, we did what we came for, we got out safe and Matt and I made it to work on time.
