Harry Holmes - Lead rpt - 12/Sep/14 with Mat Pigden

Starting to feel more at home on the axes - used a clip stick to 2nd bolt. 5 Laps of route today and an alternative start using the M7 into M6 whilst on a top rope.
Karl Wooffindin - Lead rpt - 25/Jan/14

Dogged up to the top and then worked it on top rope. Quite straight forward once you know where the slots are. Will return again.
Karl Wooffindin - Lead dog - 18/Jan/14 with Josh Sykes

Harry Holmes - Lead O/S - 05/Jan/14 with Andy Turner

Felt straightforward this time, like an actual warm up. Doing the start quickly and smoothly is key. Better tools (Ergos rather than Cobras) must help but hopefully I'm also a bit better now.
Misha - Lead rpt - 29/Dec/13 with Ian W

Hidden - TR - 29/Oct/13

First time at Masson Lees, lead Warm up route clean. M6 at The Works, hodge close coniston would be a shock for anyone. There is a big difference in grading.
ffdalton - Lead O/S - 26/Oct/13 with Dean Dalton

Lead, but absolutely dogged it! First ever dry tool route. Probably need to go somewhere with some easier routes next time...
dutybooty - Lead dog - 14/Apr/13 with Dan Camm

Mr. K - TR dog - 27/Jan/13 with Masa Sakano, Lee Parsons

Hidden - 13/Jan/13

Moves not too hard though I wouldn't call it a warm up as such!
Dan Lane - Lead β - 27/Dec/12 with Andy Turner, Simon Chevis

Still not a warm up. Clean first time but got flash pumped. Ended up dogging on the 2nd lap
philhilo - Lead rpt - 23/Dec/12 with misha

First go felt a bit stiff even though pre-clipped the third clip (this wasn't a warm up last time and still isn't! though loads easier once you know the moves). Second go was fine even though didn't pre-clip. Used Phil's technique of reaching through to the slot by the second clip rather than going out right to the flattie - seems to be easier this way. Monos also help!
Misha - Lead rpt - 23/Dec/12 with Phil

Not a warm up on cold arms! Dogged up 1st attempt. Easy enough 2nd time
philhilo - Lead RP - 03/Nov/12 with misha

First time dry tooling at Masson and first route. Not really a warm up due to the butch start! Fought up it, just about avoiding a flash pump.
