Last week this was an easy warm up for upstairs. Today it felt hard, did it twice to double check....... Definitely feeling pants today. Cold coming on :(

Cloverleaf 28/Oct/17 Lead RP

A brilliant, if polished Tufa climb on an overhanging wall. Warmed up on it bolt to bolt and got clean on TR 3rd go, clean on lead 4th after not being allowed to strip the draws by my belayer (and told to rest, and man up)! Avoided the first hole and stayed left before traversing into the upper hole. First (admittedly soft) outdoor 7a and on the last day of the holiday before heading to the airport.
