First stab at an E1 lead, may have had a better chance if it was cooler but the moves through and just above the roof I found really hard. Great fun though!

Tried on lead but failed at the crux. Jams were ripping my hands and didn't really know where I was going. On second I needed a couple of rests. Still, first go at leading E1!

First E1 Lead!!!!!! Climbing up to the roof is nice to get your focus before the roof, really good gear in the crack that splits the roof. I really found the pull over strenous, bit of nervous tension aswell me thinks not wanting give up the onsight. Ace route

Seemed like another Pass of Ballater soft touch E1. Maybe the recent hard training was paying some dividends. Scrappy through the roof but never got too pumped or owt

Failed at the crux. I would like to blame the rain which only fell when I was on the route, typical, but the truth is that I faffed the crux and need to get training.

Attempted onsight in the morning, doubt I would have managed even if the route was dry but the fact that it was dripping wet is my excuse for failure and I'm sticking to it. Only just managed later on in the day in much better conditions.

Amazing hand jam and finger locks, made it harder than the layback moves but was nice to realise that I can climb a crack using finger locks.
