Ed Booth 11 Jul, 2018 Lead dog 2xdogs to open account at end of 2 long days. Everything was sore but really good to learn all the sequences. Hopefully can get stuck in next time I'm up.

Mat Welsh 15 Jun, 2016 Lead dog Best attempt on Day 5 - Clean to the chains with one hang at the fifth bolt . Tried it another three days but conditions deteriorated damp / smeg and jacked it in when I injured my elbow on it on my last try on a long day. Whether I try to push the grade again is anyone's guess !

thebigfriendlymoose 19 Jul, 2014 Lead RP Start of 4th session. Bit of a shock to say the least. Went up hoping, at best, to lead from the start past "the press" for the first time (came close to that on 3rd session). I managed that.... and just kept on going!
