Climbed on way back down in the dark. Jumped back to main crag amongst the flying bats. (The leap with bats made a good bit of video)

Quite tricky, only gets S in the guidebook, HS is definitely more appropriate. Good holds, but you have to feel around for them!

Left Back 23/May/09 Lead dnf

fell off (end of the day lost all grip)lesson learn't dont climb for 5 hours before attempting a S 4a level climb (went up and down black slap centre and left to show Ryan how to top rope and again to set up the top rope after his lead climb....)
