Had to strip the gear and this provided the most interest. I did a lot of leaning and pushing, little pulling required

R0bbie - Lead O/S - 24/Aug/08 with leighn and mat

very scary not much gear placements.
K_MacLeod - Lead dog - 16/May/08 with Mitchell Bird, and Kevin Sturgeon

No half intimidating, though easy really - protection isn't as good as you would think though. Plenty air and good situation.
