B-bop - TR O/S - 18/Aug/14 with Matt Grange

Started raining! A very nervy lead if done properly, i.e.not using the left arete. Used left hand start up the arete, some good moves.

really not sure if done correctly, blind crack very hard.
gordonday - TR O/S - 12/Jul/12 with clive

Used the left aret, not sure if that allowed. Desperate otherwise.

HVS finish
Stone Muppet - Lead O/S - 12/May/12 with sd-l, md

Nicely contrasting sections. E2 5b in Rockfax, which I think is probably fair, if you use the LH arete plus crack. Burly start, then bold and pretty tenuous above, with the only meaningful gear at half-height.
Andy Clarke - Lead O/S - 31/Mar/12 with Ralph

Climbed this thinking it was a VS 5a (Back in the day before I'd reached E grades). Got half way up the top crack and fell/slipped down the slab until toes luckily caught on a horizontal lip. Had a wobbly and got a mate to run up to the top to lower a rope down to me. Guess I'll have to try it again some day but am in no hurry.
