I'd just lead it, resting on every bolt numerous times and getting scared. Eventually made it to the top and told Rach I'd never lead it clean. Rach had a go on top rope and impressively almost flashed it. Suitably inspired I did it clean on a top rope next go. Now to lead it.

Second go on the TR. Still no idea what I'm doing with these pointy things.

Warm up. First time in fruit boots on this. A bit easier, nice to have light feet with very precise placements.

First ever dry tooling! So much fun
Sarah Black - TR RP - 07/Dec/14 with Andy Foster, Paul Black
Best effort on the lead so far. Clipped over the roof, got axe into crack but no feet over. Next time.
philhilo - Lead dog - 05/Dec/14
Not quite as smooth as I'd like but basically fine.

Here we go again the annual struggle. After a couple of failed top rope goes on Sat, and a failed lead on Sun I finally did it clean for the first time...but on a top rope. There is hope!

Was interested to see how hard this would feel on the first day of the season. Surprisingly it felt pretty steady - no desperate scratching around! Knowing all the moves helped of course.

Top rope warm up. Felt weird on a top rope, the balance is different.

Last route of the day after two goes on Tumble. Milked the rests and it felt fine - no desperate struggle with the layback crack this time. May be I'm getting fitter after all...
Misha - Lead rpt - 22/Feb/14 with Simon Ward
Ramon Marin - Lead rpt - 15/Feb/14 with viki harvey
Quick go for the burn after finally redpointing WG and belaying Phil on this. Bit of a battle with the layback / torquing crack above the final overlap as couldn't get onto the good hooks (fading daylight didn't help) but pulled it off. Phil then top roped by headtorch for the practice - now that's commitment!
Misha - Lead rpt - 04/Jan/14 with Phil
Pathetic! Felt good after the warm ups but got flash pumped by 3rd bolt - useless compared to last time. TR in dark with head torch but not much left.

A bit of a struggle on the top crux but got it clean.

To the roof clean then ran out of gas. Think hooking up the crack would be better for the clip.

First proper go on the big roof. Pleased to get to the top although head torch useful. No hard moves, just need lots of go.

Last route of the day after three goes on Don't Tumble but had had three goes on this the day before. Bit of a fight going through the weakness in the roof but managed it clean. Only the first bolt pre clipped - fine.
Misha - Lead RP - 10/Nov/13 with Dave Garry
Top roped as the warm up of the day. Several rests, trying to remember the moves from best part of two years ago and getting lots of beta from Dave - thanks! Second go axe popped off the tooth of rock at the weakness in the top band of overhangs. Third go axes held fine but flailed getting past the same spot and pumped out before getting to easy ground. Need more go go juice! Should be ok on fresh arms.

Mr Wild - TR - 26/Feb/12 with Simon Ward
Got it! Had dogged it once before, so knew some of the moves and holds. Quite close on the first go but had a rest at the last overlap. Didn't think I'd have enough juice to do it clean but gave it a go anyway. Got to the rest by the second bolt very smoothly, which made a difference. Knew what to do on the rest of it as well, so climbed it fairly quickly and efficiently, so in the end it didn't even feel that hard (but still fairly hard). Had the first three bolts pre-clipped after Tom's attempt - the first one needs pre-clipping anyway, doesn't make any difference for the second one as it's next to a rest but having the third one clipped does make a bit of a difference. Should go back and do it with just the first bolt... but too many other lines to go at!
Misha - Lead RP - 25/Feb/12 with Tom
Miles harder than Apple and Pears! Pretty much dogged it bolt to bolt. Nothing desperate though, just pumpy, and should be a lot easier to redpoint so keen to get back on this.
