Would have been nice to have a Cam for the first bit of protection but an offset nut did the job.

No harness so old school overhand knot around the waist. Andy told me crush injuries used to kill people in t'old days, just before I set off - which was nice.

Wasn't as easy as I thought it would be to protect.
D Berry - Lead O/S - 22/Aug/09 with Claire Berry

Went on the lead, got as far as the top of the first crack and came off placing the nut. Dan went up and did it and I came straight up it on 2nd. Annoying! I'll lead it next time.

Bold but brilliant!
JRClay100 - Lead - 26/May/09 with K I Merrick

Severe disco leg due to inability to place large new hex. Placed the hex, all looked good, gave the gear a good tug whilst looking carefully at the placement and the fucking thing pinged out, smacked me on the cheekbone and left me with bloody face. Moral: move stupid head out of the way when checking suspect gear.
