Late in day on first crag of trip, panicked after surprising myself by getting through crux and lowered on hastily placed green c3, would've crushed if a few days later. Might be tempted to ab in and replace insitu thread next time, suspect it might be a bugger to place on the lead. Went on to win quiz night at southgate community pub with team of OAPs
