Brilliant. Felt easier to lead than I had expected, though still plenty scarey.

Tricky route finding made some of the runouts feel quite spicy, and fighting the pump made 5b feel like 5c! Nice line though

Very tiring. E3 5b+ is a funny grade when you are fat and unfit.
Ian Jones - Lead β - 10/Jun/10 with Roger Benton

Snapped off a foothold and fell 4m onto the peg. Well grazed and shaken but went up for more. Got close to the pegs but pumped out and fell onto an RP in quartz. Very exciting. Eager to get back on it.

Scarey! Had a bit of a gibber at the very last tricky move before jugs and protection.
