luke glaister 11 Aug Lead dog So good. Had one working go and 2 rps. 2rd rp go got through the crux and was on a jug but with the wrong hand. I tried like mad to swap hands but just couldn't. So gutted. It felt on . Will be a pleasure to return for this tho.

Rockmonkey1977 15 Jul, 2017 Lead dog First go= best go! Unfortunately I went too far into the red and never really recovered for the redpoint despite about 3 more goes. Really should have flashed it but just failed to spot the needed rest within the groove. Fairly confident it should go quite quickly next time if I remember the beta... Cool varied climbing.
