Think I used a hold on the neighboring climb at one point. Pretty steep.
Calum Wadsworth - Lead O/S - 01/Apr/14 with Alex

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

first E1, was fairly scary lol, one mat. no spotters, bit pumpy
Liam Copley - Solo O/S - 16/Nov/08 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.
