Led first pitch, good placements for gear. Massive confusion at the end of the pitch as the belay was already occupied by somebody on the wrong route. Well that can happen to anyone and it did 22 June. The start of bat crack leads to the confusion.

My first abseil into a route, my first trad route as well as my first multi pitch, so lots to learn. After Andy set up the first belay station I set off with a lot of trepidation.....and instantly came unstuck! For all the will in the world I could not retrieve the first piece of gear, after 10 mins of desperate attempts, and getting pumped, I had to move on. Getting to the belay station was utterly terrifying; I could not look at the sea at all it was so high up. The second pitch was ok, however what a day and what great memories. I hope one day to lead this.
