Super muddy but some really nice moves. Felt v.high in the grade but possibly because of the mud. Top moves out of the pocket felt more like 6a to me.

The route was absolutely full of mud making the grade feel like a 6b. Every hold was full of mud. But we had to do it once started. I couldn't finish on my lead attempt. After Tommy lead and cleaned the route, it was nice.

First Climb of the day, bloody cold rock. Not bad considering but needed some assistance from a very tight rope. This time finshed going to the left of the bulge which worked ok

The_Boy_ODwyer - Lead O/S - 11/Apr/10 with Tom

Again we were rubbish with Andy getting to 4th bolt, I could not even get past the second. The start go up to the right of the bolt and then with the bolt at chest height, hands on the break line and right foot in the large hole take a long step left to the gurly foothold and traverse
