emmafizzle 18 Aug, 2017 Lead dnf Decided to try a climb completely not my style since I was having such a rubbish day climbing. Bolt to bolt struggle followed by many attempts to get to 4th bolt eventually ending up inverted on the rope... so I came down and called it a day. At the very least I tried something different!?
