T - Depot. Awful traffic en route meant it took over an hour to get there. Really busy and really hot. Bad mood ensued. Went on the 30 board but not sure what good it did. Did a few problems but don't like the holds on that board and there's no variety; so undercuts or sidepulls, only slopey hardwood holds pinches and jugs. Definitely need a change from the Depot I think.
Try the Manc Depot for their 30 board?? Full of edges, rat crimps, duos, sidepulls, underclings etc etc.... Tempted to get back on it myself now it's cooling down.Was a nice fresh Easterly on Sun. Kilnsey would have been brisk!

Each to their own and all that but I just don't like those holds at all. Yeah a poor bit of forecast interpretation really on Sunday.
Lead Vein Thrombosis, by putting the draws in for Phil. Then got on Rake’s Progress 7a+. Worked the first 3 bolts, got the sequences sorted. Second tie in, I linked to the 3rd bolt unexpectedly. Luckily I had enough quickdraws and went through to the belay. Want to go back and repeat it on film. Great moves, and a great route. Very happy
Plan: a rest day then something shorter than La Demande.
If it still hot tomorrow, Série Limitée might be interesting? Climb in the shade until 2pm, and with a much more modern approach to grades. My better half thought the pitches were easier on SL than on the two crux pitches of Riviere d'Argent, and she's a specialist of vertical terrain. The crux pitch on SL is a bit steep though... but if your shoulder could take 3 pitches of chimneying, surely it is fine?
I think we’ll do something in the Frime/Jardin des Suisses or Heure Zéro areas which gives us an afternoon shade option if the forecast warm weather is correct.
