Experimented climbing with the boots on - led to much slipping about and hauling myself up with nothing even close to nice climbing... Didn't do top scramble - will go back to Lead whole thing.

My first lead, my first fall, HS 4b then I think, maybe VS. Of course falling is eventful, a challenge to overcome. I'd already soloed the Severe crack to the right so was encouraged well by my brilliant tutor in how to lead, John.
