Our first climb on our first visit to Portland. Agree with a lot of others before, extremely polished. A good start to a really good day though.

Chrissie Baylis 12/Mar/11 2nd
Charlie Evans 09/Mar/11 Lead O/S

2+? My arse! Polished and indefinate. First bolt is low, so decking before the second feels possible for sure. Not an encouraging lead for someone building experience.
