Started the day intending to climb Scare City, but bailed rapidly. Decided to work the starting moves and do this instead. TR a dozen times or so, until clean on a loose rope, before leading above a couple of pads. First E5 and first route I've properly worked on, so very satisfied!!

Dogged first section but got all of the moves clean, not sure my fingertips can take linking them together, or my climbing ability! Traverse left and Fool's Gold easy

bold crux. worth E5.
wolf.leeb - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/14 with Craig

Some bloke said it was fine once you had the flake. I think it's e3 with pads. Is a worthwhile highball test piece in this fashion.
Ewan Russell - Lead β - 06/May/14 with Jack Lawledge, Matt bangor, Henry, Anna

BenRyle - Lead RP - 03/Mar/14 with James, Charlottte

Shunted 3 times, then sent it. It felt so good on solo, without the shunt dragging me about, and no harness to carry. 4th E5

In fading light. I was too scared to lead it. I found the line left then right to the flakes easier than the flakes all the way.
