Maybe deviated a tad right but felt natural to go there.

Way steeper and trickier than it looks. Think I didn't give this the respect it's due!

To finish Jam's lead, Alex had a go after me, before abbing for the gear.

Bitting wind, sharp rock, sandbag grade?

Decided to attempt to top rope a 5C route just to see if I could. Turns out I can't, I got spanked.

A generous team let me follow them up this once Alex and Chris had left. The evening was too good to waste. Deceptively tricky this one, steeper than it looks, but with good moves. Occasionally dirty.

first E1, was fairly scary lol, one mat. no spotters, bit pumpy

with Laney, bro, chris

Tried it as a first E1 and was too hard. Should have tried an easier but slightly less well protected route as a first E1.

Bit of a dirty send this. Fletch fell off on his attempt. I climbed on his pre-placed gear (without pulling the ropes through) and got to the top.
