Solid climb with a trickier finish
RioVista23 - Lead O/S - 14/Apr/12

Very challenging for me as I'm still very scared of leading. Got myself into two situations where I rested as I didn't know what to do, climbed up a little above the clip and then got scared and down climbed to the clip. After deliberation, I eventually pushed on. At the higher crux I encountered a blank wall (well blank for me) and eventually found a balancy position to clip from. Whilst clipping, I pulled the rope up but although I was high enough the drag in the rope and my tentative position meant that I had the rope loop 2cms below the clip for ages without being able to pull it higher without unseating myself. When I tried to pull it up and clip again I felt myself fall away. I was so scared as my worst fear is falling whilst clipping the next bolt! I'm ashamed to say that I grabbed the quick draw to stop me coming off and then clipped it. I was cross, but I would have been super scared if I'd actually fallen at this point. I took a rest after this and did the move again to prove to myself that I could do it. Overall pleased that I managed to push on through the scary above bolt bits of the climb even after taking a couple of small falls and getting scared. Lots to work on though!

Was 6a+ because the whole wall stood a lot more upright in the 90's. It's slumped and as such was downgraded. Crux is still 6a+ territory but the rest isn't any more.
