Gentleman Joe 18/Apr Lead β

First E1 lead! Boulder problem start isn't too bad but being tall probably helps. The groove itself is certainly deceptive and harder than it looks from the floor, lots of funky (and probably unnecessary) body positions got deployed to bridge and smear my way up it! Ended up coming off in the groove from being stupid whilst placing gear - a small nut ripped as I tried to seat it and my other hand popped because I wasn't holding on to something sensible! Got back on straight away as I figured it was me being a plonker that had spat me off and not that I fell trying to make a move.

Luke set out to do West Wing but bailed left to finish South Groove. Found it very tricky, but did it cleanly. Would have not enjoyed being on the sharp end for this one...

Decked twice the fist time the cam failed when falling on it, heard down the slope at speed with Joe in his attempt to stop me, the boys then replaced the cam for me and it failed for the second time while I was resting on it, far nicer fall to the ground, got in a good green cam after that but I wasn't feeling it and therefore backed off. There goes my short streak of leading e1

Hardest bit is the first couple of moves, which took me a couple of attempts with cold hands

Chris got into an absurd position on the mantleshelf which left him in such fits of uncontrolled laughter he couldn't hold on any more. Martin was equally troubled by the mantelshelf but at least proved he had actually done some of the washing-up this week as his Fairy-soft fingers were ripped by the granite and he trailed a river of blood up the whole climb

Gear popped, an hit the deck on the crux move, if you've never climbed 5c wouldn't pick this as your first to onsight. Mainly my fault bad gear placement.

One of the most deceptive climbs I have seen from the ground. It looks like a Vdiff! After a struggle to gain the initial mantleshelf you realise it is a more serious proposition. Excellent moves on rounded rock that resemble gritstone up a corner. More gear than one would expect. Fantastic.

Second E1. Excellent route. Thoroughly enjoyable, technical climbing with no real handlholds as such! More gear than I thought there would be.

Missed a great gear placement just by the crux, apparently. Excellent route requiring brains rather than brawn.
