Feel like I should have picked a different route.
Dave Warburton - Lead O/S - 09/Sep/14 with Katie Farrell

Need to get better at steep stuff. My arms just couldn't take it, not so much climbed as hauled. Good holds, just a few hard moves to get to them.
K Farrell - 2nd dog - 09/Sep/14 with Dave Warburton

A few years ago I tried this when it was getting dark as the last climb of the evening, got to the ledge, put a cam in, moved up and fell. The cam ripped out and I took a big backwards fall, somersaulting and catching my left foot on a ledge as I fell, coming to a halt skimming the ground after my belayer moved backwards to take in as much slack as he could. I broke a bone in my foot which has left me with permanent pain and difficulty with any prolonged time on my feet. Last night I went back for the first time since the accident to try it again. I got past the move I fell on but stopped a couple of moves higher up. It was getting dark again, the midges were awful and I was pumped out through a combination of it being a pumpy route and the pure fear that I was battling. I now have a bit of a dilemma because I want to go back and finish it but the whole experience was so terrifying it has left me utterly drained. Looks like I've got a life's project ahead of me. Next time I'm going in daytime anyway...

Too much faffing. Steep jamming is not my forte.

Pretty easy. Downclimbed from near the top expecting a hard final move that doesn't materialise (ridiculous description in Over the Moors). Great moves though, superb holds and bomber gear.
