We both lead on preplaced gear. Absolutely detested the slippy slab, but going over the nose was fun.

James Hardman 07/Jul/17 Lead β

Pre placed the only gear needed from the side because I have no respect for style and am a terrible Trad hating punter.

Foot slipped off while pulling on, second go.
