WillCrabtree 1 Apr Lead dnf Did it in two on my first go which I was happy with. Went for the redpoint and took a decent fall from the penultimate clip before the chains, hit my foot and cracked a bone. No more climbing for me for a few weeks. Nice climb though, although a little run out in the middle. Be prepared for some air if you fall off at the second to last clip like I did!
