Reds - 2nd O/S - 27/May/12 with Althesin

Did as part of the crack school with the "wide boyz". Was struggling to make any progress in the middle until Tom spotted I wasn't using the chicken wing to it's full potential. I had the rope wrapped around my arm which was causing problems. Once that was sorted, I managed to fight my way to the top - Brilliant!! Need to go back and lead it next time.

Hard.
Hjort - Solo dnf - 04/Sep/10

Difficulty increased directly proportional to gifted-ness of ones chest. For once, big 'jugs' are not an advantage.

easier facing left, use a high heel hook where it narrows

45min epic. Triumph of wriggling over gravity (and working out the crafty finishing move for those who don't really fit)
popebenedictus - Lead O/S - 11/May/09 with Edd Rab

edd rab - 2nd O/S - 11/May/09 with Ben Harding
