First time to malham sport. Tried a few things, would have been better to have done this earlier on, definitely more my type of thing. Been a long time since i climbed routes, even if they are short; felt pretty rusty. Suntrap :-(

Hidden - Lead RP - 20/Jun/09

Silly billy. Fell on onsight ascent pumping out trying to clip chain. Convinced myself that the way to do it was to do desparate moves to set feet up to make dynamic moves out to flake level with belay - this is not the way to do it I realise now and wasted everyone's efforts with this rediculous approach - oh well
