seemed very tough for E1 as per the guide or was i going badly?
Graeme Hammond - Lead O/S - 26/Aug/12 with Jim

Should of got this clean. Arms were still pretty pumped from warming up on Grey Face. Apparently I was only an inch or so away from the good hold when I popped off. Didn't help trying to get up it Jack's way. I did it differently in the end and was annoyed at how much easier it felt. Will hopefully lead it next time... Think the grade depends on how much you trust that sling. Personally thought it felt more E1 then HVS...
charley - 2nd dog - 03/May/12 with JackD, Ange

Various ways of doing this one, it seemed I managed to do it the hardest as per usual! Doh! Really nice technical climbing though! The slings bomber, just fall to the right if you're thinking of coming off!
Jackwd - Lead O/S - 03/May/12 with Angela Paul

Excellent lead by Jack. Slipped off the crimp the first time but happy to have managed the moves second time. Might have found the gear a bit unnerving on lead.
