Faffed trying to place gear at the mid point when another move would have seen me at a better rest. Brilliant climb though!

this climb was right at the limit of my ability,had to hang on the rope to try to remove some of the pro Ian had fallen on,why is it that when you lend someone your new set of wallnuts to do the lead its only your gear that ends up jammed or dropped in a rockpool (he did recover them eventually)
