Misha 31 Oct, 2010 Lead O/S This was meant to be a bouldering day with perhaps a few routes if it warmed up. It wasn't actually particularly cold but we were essentially in a cloude the whole day, so it never got 100% dry and much of Burbage South was green anyway. Led this after Eddie backed off the starting moves. Those were ok but the finishing crack proved to be a bit of a battle due to being covered in slimy lichen. Poor footholds didn't help. Was pleased to find out it was 5b as felt very hard for 5a! The jams were good but painful. Also had a couple of goes at Nosferatu on a top rope that Brian, Ian W and Mike T had set up. Got all the moves second go (warm fingers helped) but would have needed a few more goes to link it.
