Sandbag. E1 5b. Chuck ran the 2 pitches together and dropped a shoe down the big crack at the back of the top ledge. Took 10 mins fishing to get it.

Maybe I'd been spoilt on the slabs, but this felt like very hard sustained climbing with a few gaps between the placements... a bit of a sandbag?
jonny taylor - Lead O/S - 23/Sep/09 with James

Climbed in rapidly fading light. Struggled to see any holds so had a bit of a moment half way up second wall.
Jimmy O - 2nd dog - 23/Sep/09 with Jonny Taylor

Awkward. We both agreed that there were one or two 5b moves on this.
