Powder Puff Girl - 2nd dnf - 25/May/09 with Ben H

Having spent 30 mins trying to get over the top roof, gave up and traversed off. Must have missed a trick I think
popebenedictus - Lead dnf - 25/May/09 with Ruth Harding

My first E1 lead! Whoop! Scary slab moves, felt a lot like the situation I was in on sunset slab, but without the bomber slider... Had a hurrendously poor cam in, which wouldnt have held body weight, but you never know... Found the moves a bit sketchy, but mostly just because I was scared. From this up to the roof is also suprisingly hard! Once at the roof, laced it with a couple of cams and tried to work out a way of getting over the top before getting pumped! Reached over, found a crimp, figured there must be something better, reached again, just the crimp again. Eventually decided to commit holding the crimp and hanging on it whilst leaning out and reaching up. Worked fine if a bit strenuous. Then have to somehow get feet over the lip which I found the hardest bit, had to get them almost by my face and push up and over! Great feeling!
