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?
Jam, Ben Powrie

Think I used a hold on the neighboring climb at one point. Pretty steep.
Decided to attempt to top rope a 5C route just to see if I could. Turns out I can't, I got spanked.
Much harder than it looks (looks about VS 4c from the ground)
Worst attempt yet

Tricky; but the File and Rat's Tail seemed equally difficult if not more so.

Tried this on lead too - massive fail!

Not really a great route but definitely trickier than it looks!

hands too cold
Pumpier than expected given fairly juggy holds. Deviated into the small whole on the route on the right.
went right a bit off route into hole

Laney, bro, chris
|Dan Lane||16/Nov/08||Lead dnf||
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.
