druss 19/Mar Lead dog

Harder than expected so pleased with the effort. Finished it being better at rattly hands than when I started at the bottom.

Bizarrely low-friction for jams in the crack.

God I hate jamming! Very steep and hard so have to admit to pulling on the last piece of pro.

Looks easy from the ground. It isn't though.

took a rest at the crux, then cursed as I spotted the foothold I had needed - invisible from above, you need to clock it from below

Attempted to lead this but found after 2 days of abuse my hands weren't upto much. Phil sorted it out though.

Two rests on gear. First fist-jamming route of the year and I was stuggling to find the jams and make them stick. Brutal route!

Should have gone back down and lead it from the ground up as it wasn't really that bad, but the midges were truly awful.

Ouch! I lost skin and dignity and fell off twice before giving up and handing the lead over to my more competent partner. Did it on second but with some tension during the crux even then.
