Seconded previously, still harder than it looks, but have come a fair way from my original effort!

Climb with mostly pre-placed gear curtesy of Raf. Liking the climbs at Higgar Tor, nice climb. Well protected.

Way steeper and trickier than it looks. Think I didn't give this the respect it's due!

To finish Jam's lead, Alex had a go after me, before abbing for the gear.

Calum Wadsworth 01/Apr/14 Lead O/S

Think I used a hold on the neighboring climb at one point. Pretty steep.

Decided to attempt to top rope a 5C route just to see if I could. Turns out I can't, I got spanked.

A generous team let me follow them up this once Alex and Chris had left. The evening was too good to waste. Deceptively tricky this one, steeper than it looks, but with good moves. Occasionally dirty.

Tried it as a first E1 and was too hard. Should have tried an easier but slightly less well protected route as a first E1.

Bit of a dirty send this. Fletch fell off on his attempt. I climbed on his pre-placed gear (without pulling the ropes through) and got to the top.
