noticed people top rope it all day, soon found out why when i led it, very polised and quite pumpy trying to seat gear in the top half, and ended up no gear in the final few moves, good skin removing route.

evening session at almscliff.. a few odd bits and bobs done, nothing new

wanderso 01/May/08 Lead O/S

Again made it a bit more dificult than I needed to. Good jams with fists but a bit flighty at half way when have to complete move before putting gear in. Have to get head around being way above gear again. Prob not at deckout level but would have been a long fall. Anyway, reasonably controlled and pleased with the effort to stay on and finish a pleasant evening out.

Fantastic! Really enjoyed this one, everything went easily and smoothly which was good as I thought it was going to be a bit of a nightmare, I thought I was going to be disappointed with my jamming skills when confronted with a pure jamming crack, but every jam went in first time securely and I didn't feel out of balance or asif I was going to fall out at any time! I think the trick was using feet much more than I normally do, I just kept reminding myself to sand on them rather than pull with hands. Absolutely beautiful line, short but most certainly sweet. One of my favourites I think! Dad followed with relative ease and had someone to say hello to whilst belaying!

I just had one tiny tiny piece of Beta about one move and some help choosing the gear with suggestions towards where to place. My first ever attempt at onsight and first lead with some jamming in.

Well, this is the second time I have attempted this route (first time was early last year). I got further than I did then, but had to back off around the half way mark. Oh well, better luck next time!

jugglingeek 29/Jul/07 Lead dog

After falling quite impressively onto my first piece of gear during the jamming crux the rest of the assent was quite clean. Placing gear near the obvious jug was strenuous. Tried again to lead this clean on 25/11/2007 with similar results. Again the purple hex held and I did the move fine after collecting myself. After gaining the jug I kicked my second piece of gear out, after a quick calculation I realised that a fall would result in hitting the ground and I decided that now was the time to place some more gear with much haste. Next time I do it clean I promise.
