First weekend sport climbing. Started at Cuttings to do some short easy stuff. Everything polished as hell. then came round to Blacknor and got some exposure! Brilliant. Wussed out after eight bolts, but came back following morning and did it fast, then got most of the way up Reptile Smile. (next time!). All well within indoor grades acheived, but different on 23 metre sea cliffs above a massive drop to rocks and crashing waves! Beautiful. Best weekend ever.

First half of climb very straight forward. Requires a couple of big, bold movements in the middle section, but some lovely juggy holds inside the flowstone. Weird, wonderful rock to climb on (like wrapping your leg around an elephant and reaching into a cave simultaneously!. Friendly finish.

My first route on flowstone and what amazing stuff it is! This climb was meant to be Slings Shot, but I wandered off course quite badly and ended up doing the difficult bits of Talking Smack. I loved the climb. At the top, I was tired but tried four, or five, times to get over the shelf directly. I failed (but didn't fall). With barely any energy left, I went left round the shelf and completed the climb.

An excellent, juggy, long route well worth its three stars. Good wide belay area at the bottom (as opposed to other blacknor routes!) and wonderful on an autumn afternoon in the sun. A good introduction to the grade.

First F5 lead! One lengthy rest but I didn't hang on the rope and I made it in the end, so I'm happy to call this a clean ascent. Great route on bizarre rock. Note to self: must come back and try Reptile Smile when I'm climbing stronger!

Great 90ft climb on unusual flowstone formation. 10B to lower off. Really enjoyed leading this. 3 months between first ascent and the lead (2nd ascent)
