First time on limestone! Nice little route, footholds don't feel nice if you aren't used to it but they're actually good. I avoided a couple of really polished foot placements but nowhere near as bad as the comments here describe. Got to the last move, couldn't figure out how to finish it, took a rest, then did it straight away. Repeated it clean afterwards. Not straightforward for 'the easiest climb in the gorge'! Felt so much better the second time though.

My first go on a rock leading, only once doing DWS beforehand. For a absolute beginner, not as cut and dry as you'd think. Smooth, polished rocks and some very precarious positions (for a beginner), a few times up a rock and I suspect this will be so easy as not to be a challenge at all. Pissed down with rain when I went up it which made the already smooth holds even worse.

First sport lead! Proud of myself. Struggled to find handholds, got pretty scared. It also rained as I neared the top! I ended up clipping the last bolt of the 5+ next door as I couldn't find any holds apart from on the right. I think I was meant to go left of the line of bolts between last one and loweroff. After clipping onto the other route I realised that I would swing too much if I went for my loweroff so I went up for the wrong one! The massive ledge to stand on definitely influenced my decision ;) Though actually it was really tricky and not nice so I wouldn't recommend my route choice! May have ended up as a 5 or 5+...
