End of an era... Tried this on and off for many years now. First time today, felt like I climbed well and was very motivated to finally get on top!

Top out feels like hard work after the start.

Night session with 'billy no mates'. Only had one pad so had to start sitting in the dirt, and I got scared cos I could here the mice scampering about lol. Really pleased I got the it. Did in two halves the other night, and went quickly tonight. To whoever thought it needed foot long tickmarks I've cleaned them off for you. Knobheads.

A good session working it with a group from Edinburgh. Fine once the beta was sussed.

First 7B flash. Can't believe I managed this - it's not my style at all. Absolutely skin of the teeth at the end. Had to give it absolutely everything. Edit: Please note that Nathaniel did not flash this on the 30th May 2016. Absolutely fantastic news.

Felt pretty steady tonight. I'm not sure in the past I tried it using the flatty out right or whether I'm just stronger now. Very happy to get it ticked!
