Couldnt work out crux. But neither could my old man at first, which makes me feel slightly better.

First E5
Alice Thompson - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/13 with Dan Gibson

Found the crux hard (6b) and safe. Might have got wrong-footed on the only good foothold midcrux. Awkward.

Howard Lawledge - Lead - 22/May/12 with Jack

Flashed it on Murdogh's gear, although it would have been fine to place and obvious. Cool route, 1st E5 off slate.

Not scary but I wasn't trusting RPs (which are bomber) in less than perfect placements. Tried the move to the bolt about 5 times but just felt very thin and committing. Lowered off due to time pressure :(

I was expecting bold and not that hard but it felt quite the opposite.
