felt like I was missing a hold out near the top flake
scotty h - Lead dnf - 04/Mar/11 with Lewis Mansell

Got 2 pieces of gear in, and then another 2(2cams in the same horizontal crack as I wasn't happy they were great placements-was carrying extra gear) before the 2main crux moves. Took a bit of persuading with myself to do the first move (totally fine, and actually rather nice when you realise the hold size!) By this point, it was strongly mentioned about putting me on a top rope just incase, but wasn't done as I got on with it...until I was dragged over the top move. FAIL!!! But once I'd got set up and my seconder climbed the route, I top roped it. I WILL lead this route properly.

Paul led first, but couldn't do the crux; I then tried leading (using Paul's pre-placed gear) but couldn't do it either! Down-climbed easily. I'd give it 4b at least.
