luke_blazejewski 3 Aug Lead O/S Still finding jamming quite hard, but getting better! Almost gave up on this but George's shouting encouraged me to keep going. So glad I held on! Great route.

donalmurray 19 Apr Lead dog Tried the stupidest way to gain the top crack by going feet first because I didn't fancy the featureless wall. Cammed my foot into the horizontal break and all was going well til that popped and I rolled out sideways. Got back on and tried the hands only traverse and it was absolutely grand. Idiot
