Sieging does take up a lot of time, fine if you can climb every weekend but I cant get out more than once every couple of months these days so by the time I can get back on something I've forgotten how to do it - unless I've written some notes in my guidebook which I've done a few times - pathetic I know, but better than wasting precious energy before finally remembering a sequence or trick.

My max number of tries on a route before ticking it is only 5, but that was a mere 25, my best RP grade to date. I heard of someone trying something over 100 times - a 31 (pooferator at Shipley I think). I enjoyed my 5-go siege though. You get really smooth on the moves and really improve the way you do them so you do feel like a better climber.

I wonder what the record number of tries is? Anybody tried something more than 100 times?
