Day 17 - First of the year, grimly cold and bolt 3 to 4 was too wet to climb. Felt quite good on the harder moves but Teds isn't about doing the moves, it's about linking ALL the moves.JLS - Lead dog - 04/May/13 with Fraser H., Kev G.

Only 5 clips in. Got it clip to clip up to there. Can't do one of the moves just below 1st clip though.

Was working with the rope on Marlina so could only climb to crack - far enough for today anyway!!! Start def felt a touch easier on second go. Brutal though! :D

First try in 2 and a half years...got some good beta and sequences the bag today, but a few sessions are needed on consecutive weekends to get this....need a break tendonitis flaring up this week....at least clipping the second bolt was easier than I remember...
