|Oakcy: I've noticed this on other routes as well. Next time I go, I'll take a lightweight wrench and snug any that I find. (Perhaps others can do this too.) The fixed hardware is new and may take a while to seat properly.|

This post is directed primarily to anyone involved in the FA or the FFA of Sinner Repent at the Centre of Progress cliff.
I'd love to know why you chose to take the route out the ledge to the right and up the thinner crack rather than continue following the original wide crack to the top. To be honest, I was afraid of trying the bouldery moves off the ledge to gain the handcrack, and just went back into the wide one to the top. Anyone wanting to go that way will find a slung tree now (we made it down from there with double 70s, but be careful if using 60s).
None of that is intended as any sort of criticism (and someone who admittedly couldn't pull those moves off the ledge is in no position to criticise anyway). This is a fantastic route - congrats on putting it up.
