curon 24/May Lead RP

Got past the main crux on lead, but ended up in a bad position and failed to spot a nice foot hold to my left... should have done this O/S. After an attempt by Phillipa, I redid this to set up top rope for others

Thought the white X meant the whole block was a renegade, very nervous pulling through it, but thankfully it's just a little part of it. Not 6b as noted in the guide, maybe not even 6a.

backed off at third bolt as the route was falling apart on me. the whole block that the third bolt is on feels like it will come off one day soon.

The flakes don't feel to secure. One day the whole huge boulder can come down...
