tim newton - Lead dog - 25/Jan/12 with matt

fell from the very top of the groove and stopped at the first bolt, at the same level as my (very light) belayer. 10m fall? scary as hell. tried again but gave up.
Jonathan Emett - Lead dnf - 20/Jan/12 with non-scottish john

got confused by the new route artisan on the left. 4th (or 5th?) bolt hard to clip from the flake.
