manwithacam 8 Oct, 2017 Lead dnf Got to flake, not as good as hoped. Decided to get some gear in, fingers peeled as doing so. Jumped, landed on rock and bust my leg. Spiral fracture of tibia, broken fibula, 4 broken metatarsals. Thank you to Mark, Edale Mountain Rescue, and the NHS for all the help. I may not come back to finish the route.

Got to the hold above the flake and jumped off a few times, but wasn't psyched for the rest without a spotter and more pads.
