Katex - Lead O/S - 01/Sep/13 with Simon Edwards

David Kay - AltLd O/S - 25/Aug/13 with Jules Lane

Simply fantastic - one of the best pitches I've ever climbed and the perfect grade and style for me, with all the hard moves preceded by a bridging rest. Must be 3 stars.

frost - 2nd - 05/Jul/13 with will hardy

I lead the HVS pitch we then Alt lead up the VS for two more pitches before a nearly 60 metre ab back down (off the yew tree). Very well protected, lots of rests and not high in the grade, if you can udge (although not one of my smoothest / fastest leads ever). Only used a couple of handjams.
CurlyStevo - Lead - Jul/13 with Lee H

Glyn - 2nd O/S - 30/Jun/13 with Jon Leighton, Luke
