Party Animal* E3 5c
[Grin and Bear it!  Pedro on Party Animal, Rivelin, 2 kb]10m. The centre of the slab has bold moves to the midway break (small cams) and then turns technical and reachy above. A bit escapable but the climbing is good enough to ignore that fact. © ROCKFAX

On Tom's gear. Pretty good.

First E3 on lead. Pretty good small cams in the break and the climbing felt relatively easy. Great fun!

Pockets had spiders webs in them but pretty steady climbing. Very happy to get to the gear placement though! Really midge evening but they were too scared to come onto the face, they regrouped while I was belaying though.

Cheated slightly as used (rubbish) side runner in the E1 to reach the break - pregnant wife banned me from anything bold today! Lovely slab climbing in top half especially interesting....

Followed this after Chris had led Fringe Benefit, scooting right and back to get the gear. Way beyond my leading capability at the minute - a bit scary that until recently it got E2!

Followed the direct line up the slab, fun but very similar moves the whole way. The gear felt almost too far right to be on the route, especially as it'a an eliminate, but I wasn't complaining about using it!

Was more technically difficult below the breaks with the gear than above
MD - 2nd dog - 10/May/09 with Misha

Hard and tenuous to the break, felt easier after - gear makes such a difference! Didn't quite follow the most direct line to the break - went slightly righ for a couple of moves, probably avoiding the most tenuous ones.
