Paul Sagar 30 Mar Lead dnf Couldn’t work out the boulder problem start for the life of me. And Guy was getting impatient in his improvised sling harness, as my falls at the first bolt squashed his balls ever smaller. Also, pulled a rock out and nearly hit him in the face with it. SOON, MY DEVIOUS PLAN TO MURDER HIM IN AN UNFORTUNATE “CLIMBING ACCIDENT” WILL COME TO PASS MUUUAHAHAH.
