Dave Warburton - Lead O/S - 26/Sep/15 with Katie Farrell

WiltonFest - Slipped off the boulder problem start on the 1st attempt.
GPN - Lead G/U - 05/Sep/15 with Annette

Slipped off first time. After having a hold pointed out to me pulled back on and did it. Definitely easier for the tall by a long way.
gav - 2nd RP - 05/Sep/15

Crux for me was the move up to the jug by the pegs, cos I'm not nearly 6ft.
mcb - Lead β - 05/Sep/15 with Tim Larkins

Thanks to Max for the beta, and very nearly talking me into attempting onsight lead. Glad I didn't!, but found I am only just tall enough for the move to the pegs not to be the crux (crucial beta spoiler if you know how tall I am!) so I'll look forward to leading next time.
