Bob Conley 25/Jul TR

Had a go at leading it onsight but found it a bit bold around halfway so lowered off. Toproped it after.

Paul Clarke 25/Jul 2nd

Couple of times trying shoulder out.

Dave Turnbull 25/Jul Lead dog

Managed up to half height on-sight, but had to dog it to the top in order to work out the later moves. Had a red point attempt after a rest, but failed with a despairing dyno on the last hard move right at the top. (Need to get some more training done). The fierce start is probably the hardest bit, but after a rest on the left the rest is pretty sustained. Plenty of loose rock, make sure you belay to the side!

been meaning to go back since August - crag very dry. Even better to clip up on the lead. All clips well located.
