mop449 26/Oct Lead G/U

Wet and polished start, tough boulder problem to only get 6a. Slid off the very first moves a few times but no problems after clipping the first bolt.

couldn't figure out the horrible polished start so clipped from 'dead man, rest was fine but polished

Had been meaning to come back and lead this one for a while. It went well! The start was a lot easier than last time and it was mostly not too problematic above that. Friendly bolting. Some tricky stuff at the very top but I had already managed to clip the belay so didn't mind that much.

Had a quick go on this whilst waiting for another line. Start is so polished it's like ice. Coming in from the left looks good but harder than 6a and danger of a twisted ankle if you were to fall. Gave up and went onto Speaking to a Dead Man when it freed up.

Didn't so much practise as have a couple of false starts at the boulder problem start, which would probably be a lot easier without the seeping on a couple of the holds and feet! Pretty straightforward after that.

Lead it clean sport, then seeing it gets E1 5b in an old guidebook, lead it again on trad. My first E1! Honestly, its over after the first boulder problem.

Trad led at E1 6a according to Cheddar Gorge Climbers Club guide.
