Superb climbing, will give it a bash on the sharp end next time when I have skyhooks, boulder pads and the right size cam!

Dangerous Dave - Lead dnf - 28/Oct/11 with graham, Dave O

Not really a flash as I employed a tactical climb down and jump after placing the skyhooks so I could tension them. But no 'falls'.

Just need to grow a pair now

Ground up, one fall (to the deck). Rocked over onto the slab before putting gear in as I was too toasted to stop. Mr Sketchy.
