Nice lead by Marc. Nice little route. The top section can be protected with a friend 5 or maybe a large (greater than 10) hex.

First trad lead. Done as part of RLT Lead Caveat. Quite chuffed to get a trad lead under my belt despite fact it was chucking it down and quite a grim day all round. Just need to start nailing some harder ones...

Shorter than I remembered, but then they always are. Think it was pretty respectable as a first proper lead back when I did it. I forgot it had a slimey green top-out! :)
