Ander - Lead - 11/Mar/12 with Bad Toro

I was a biff what can I say. Enjoyed the first half and then lost my balls on the polished bit. Would like to try again for sure
Sparrowmonkey - 2nd dnf - 11/Mar/12

Nice littee route, for whatever reason I found this harder on the head than the other climbs I did today (VS and e1) mind you I didn't bother with much gear and I left half the nuts behind being complacent about the grade :-)

good climb, got a bit of disco leg on middle section as failed to place enough gear (although plenty around) and found myself in an unbalenced position. Was extremly grateful to reach the tree!!
