ashtond6 - Lead rpt - 11/Oct/14

Very soft for E2 if you know the various 'tricks'. Good wire in flake below the crux - the old placements out left are crap.

Climbed in honour of our forthcoming return to the Valley. Good moves getting across from the recess and stepping up onto the slab. Gear beta alert: in the worn crack I got a couple of microwires, which weren't at all reassuring, and a microcam, which was. Make and model available on request!

Lovely padding up the upper slabs, not sure how it would feel on lead. That said, this is one I'll keep in mind in the future as a possible first E2, but as to when I pluck up the courage...not for a while yet.
