Tried again. Failed again. A bit more of a productive effort.
Ed Booth - Lead dnf - 20/May/10 with Gus Hudgins

Fell off at the crux. Pulled the ropes and left the gear in. Then lead it clean a while later, so prob ground-up or something.
Ally Baba - Lead - 24/Apr/10 with T.Rankin

Worked on a top rope now and again since i was 15ish thought it was time to lead it so i done it on a top rope for the 1st time in a couple of year to remind myself of the moves, put a draw on the peg :( should have done it while leading, and then done it.

jeffmcd56 - Lead rpt - 2010 with Wez

Tough little number this one - very fingery crux. Tony took a few goes to get it ground up and I took a few goes to get the RP out! Bit unbalanced but nice climbing....

C coldwell-storry - Lead RP - 30/Jun/08 with Mike Thomas

had a decent onsight burn but came off after peg/around crux 1 move from probable success. Ground up next go once figured the complete sequence. Brilliant sport-like climbing, ~F7a+. Ok to flash but tricky to onsight.
