Day 4 6a, sore fingers and blown onsights

Today was a projecting day.
I started off heading to encontadas for work a 6c+ and for chris to work a 7a. Chris worked his 7a for a while then vix hauled up and set a top rope of the 6c+ she had a quick play but felt confused so sent me up. I worked the route doing all the moves in isolation. Chris then had a hard session on his and linked from the start to mid height.
I got back on mine and linked to about half height and then worked the top again (desperate). The holds were all sharp and small. My fingers were absolutely trashed by the time I got down. I realised I did not have enough in me to give it another burn so called it a day for that one.
We headed to the other side of the crag and I tried to onsight a hard 6b but went off route and rested on the rope. A bit puzzled and with rain falling I called it a day and gave up.
The rain passed quickly so Vix lead a 6a I then also lead it. With my finger tips gone I called it a day. Vix then onishgted a 6a+ with a hard to read crux nice one!

Tick of the day goes to JP for his first 6a blobby right. Nice one on the grade push JP!
