Russ - Lead O/S - 30/Sep/13 with Dave Saxby

Great route - there's a couple of ways of going through the roof, and its possible to avoid jamming if you're a bit taller. I'm not, so it was just a case of plugging in a solid hand and pulling.

Pumpy route on a hot day; I rested on a hex at the crux. Only way I could do it (not a big chap, me)was to use the jugs on the left and then swing my right foot up - but the jugs were very hard to reach. Remains to be seen whether I'll bother having another attempt at a clean lead. High in the grade.

Thanks to Spooner for the lead. Got it first time on second (having the sequence worked out made it a lot easier). Stiff at 5a but not too bad once you work it out. The right hand crack is still evil.

Got this clean on the second attempt. No. 4 cam in the roof; right hand jam; high right foot. Left hand lay away on the crimp inside the crack; reach with a high right hand for the jug on the right inside the crack; pull through. Good route, physical from the moment you jam up on to the slab and jamming crack.

A poor attempt at a streaming wet crack - came off from the roof and popped a stupid placement (didn't have the right sized cam, didn't rack well, entirely my fault) while heel hooking.. took an upside-down fall about five metres to the slab below. If I had any sense it would have been both safe and doable. One to learn from - my first fall on trad. Thanks for the beautiful soft catch John! Not a proud climbing moment.
