Threw a top rope down after doing Duo Crack - nice climb but wouldn't fancy getting on the lead yet,

Good moves and the gear's not too bad as long as you've got a 1/2 Friend - excellent placement just below half height, and a good wire not too far above that. Worth doing if you're in the area.

Probably not the best route to try after not trad climbing for a few months, escaped and reversed onto the diff then had another more committed attempt. A bit scary for a VS leader I would say.

good gear 2/3 of the way up, but there was stuff lower down but not sure I would trust it. Glad I seconded it.

After doing adjacent climb moved rope across - bit damp so used cracks to the right at the top - therefore didn't do the 5a moves.... typical of a disapointing first day back properly climbing after about 13 years....!
