My first (intentional) E1 lead. Didn't go quite as smoothly as I would have liked. Several attempts at the initial crack. My final successful attempt still required a brief rest on the gear before mantling onto the ledge, so will have to clean it again. The traverse and flake are a brilliant, enjoyable piece of climbing.

Dunno how Tom did the start without falling, plus the protection wasn't great.

Bouldery start, pre-placed some gear in crack then climbed with increasing comfort and enjoyment. Well worth a look.

No guide meant i didnt go up the initial finger crack. The overlap was very cool!
El3ctroFuzz - Lead O/S - 31/May/12 with Joe Harris

Fell twice on the bottom crack. 1st after getting super pumped placing gear and trying to rest, 2nd after a slip on a poor foothold. 2nd Nut popped on 1st go. Found this really hard for E1, a bit eliminate and 5b in our guide. Managed to headpoint this with two pieces of pre placed gear. Once up the crack the undercling traverse and flake were much more relaxing!
