Micki tried leading it a few times then everyone put a send train on and bouldered it out.

Tried leading this, faffing about with gear, placed a red BD cam in the big pocket once (ripped it out while jumping off. Tried wires and all as well. Then told everyone else the beta, leading to some ego-destroying fashs. Managed to do it last as a boulder as well.

Needed assistance for some of the moves. Lots of 5c moves in a row. Then 5b moves to top out.
