Hidden - 2nd - 24/Aug/13

Solid lead by Ed. Really enjoyable and mostly fairly straightforward climbing on jams and edges but two fairly hard crux sections make this no pushover at the grade.
Misha - 2nd - 19/Aug/13 with Ed

Fairly sustained, with a couple of harder sections, pleased to get them clean. Yet another route where big gear may help.

Took 6m fall off the crux - nasty rope burn to right leg. Shame, cause it felt easy up to that point...
