Best Climbing Experience
The Dog HVS 5b, Pot Hole Quarry (Three Springs). It was a sunny day, but still with snow on the ground. Jayne had come along to second me on some of my early trad leads. I did a VDiff, a HS, then a VS, then decided that I could to the Dog (I'd seconded it before). Everything was in balance; I had a bit of a moment in the middle, until I sorted out my head and just committed and grabbed the jug in the crack about 2/3 of the way up. After that I cruised to the top (perhaps a little too boldly). A good first technical grade 5 lead.
