Dems some scary biscuits! Hats off
I watched both of these ascents.
Calum looked completely and utterly solid, watching from the descent route I couldn't see the slapping he mentioned!
George I thought was a lot more hesitant and scary to watch.. Especially some minor foot shaking right near the end of the runout!
Well done to them both
Lucky guy watching the ascents!
I was there the day before ardently hoping I *didn't* have to watch the big lead!
I think the first photo doesn't really do the route justice, it's a lot steeper than that!
I didn't feel especially lucky at the time, it was very very tense! Noone on the other routes even dared to tell their climbing partners they were off belay...
I'm sure they are both delighted at your analysis of their climbing....
It was an brilliant effort from both of them.

Brilliant! - that really conjures up the atmosphere.
"From the moment I told myself I would lead it, I had a constant sick feeling. Just thinking about it made me nervous. It seemed that the only way to get rid of this feeling was to go and climb the route."
That rather sums up climbing for me... The obsession, the compulsion...
Cal had mentioned it a while back so I knew he fancied it and there's no chance you can talk him out of it.. but couldn't have watched..
