Start of 4th session. Bit of a shock to say the least. Went up hoping, at best, to lead from the start past "the press" for the first time (came close to that on 3rd session). I managed that.... and just kept on going!

A frantic drive after work, followed by a nice red point, then the long drive back to St Helens. Thanks Dave for the belay. One of the best, glad to do it in 2 days.
