Top roped Dalken shield, was the last route of the day and didn't fancy the lead. Felt tricky movin through the crux. Will lead it next time.

Really good to lead this. Still fid the crux tricky to get into position on, however once you've found the best part of the hold it is ok.

Interesting mid height move, think I did it the hard way but still got up :)

First time round rested at half height as I could not read the move which I eventually worked out as a slopey side pull. Second time round did it clean, felt OK but not "OK I'll lead it next time" OK.
