Sue's first outdoor climb/belay so anchored by a threat and kept under tension. after seconding , Sue down climbed and reclimbed 3 or 4 times and wasn't the least bit phazed at all....an E grade climber in the making a couple of years down the line (Sue ...not me !!!)

First time climbing with a set of half ropes.... It rained, i ran out of quick-draws, so decided to climb back down to Steve (leaving gear in place), politely asked to borrow his rack as he wasn't using it while belaying me, climbed back up and completed the climb. I had a great time!!!!
