gibsond - Lead RP - 20/Sep/12 with James Bisset

Even by Dancing Ledge standards this seems very hard for the grade. Have a sequence worked out and should get it clean next time.

Alex More - Lead - 28/Apr/12 with KDhruev

KDhruev - Lead - 28/Apr/12 with Alex More

Really hard, and not worth a star anywhere. Even at dancing ledge, which is all a bit terrible... (acquired taste I'm told?) The warmup isn't supposed to be such an epic fight, but then the conditions were not good, 3 degrees and very greasy, so perhaps its not as ugly as I recall.
