Moonflower E5 6b

Yet again, tomorrow's vague plan turned into a determined effort. I had thought I might be able to get up moonflower this year, but found myself making a attempt in April. The moves were worked out up to the break and I think the crux is low, but I failed when my finger ripped off a hold taking a huge callasse of skin with it. Alot of blood made it look alot worse than it was. But I won't be trying Moonflower agian for atleast a week.I returned to the ground for a future attempt at the rest of the route. It's brilliant climbing, following an amazing series of tiny layback flakes and bodily contortions. I got to over half height and shall return after my trip to Scotland. I'm determined not to work it.
