First lead of the day - took a while to build the confidence being only second time out leading, but simple enough once I worked out the technique and began trusting my feet again.

Hit my chin as the chimney is rather narrow and not wide enough for good bracing

Had to weight the rope at the bottom to retrieve nut protecting the corner move, otherwise not bad.
