We put the clips in and worked the crux for a bit before all attempting the line on the lead, I was up first, I moved well and managed to get through the crux without any problems, there is then a small rest which is followed by an awkward crack and rock over to the lower off, I pushed on through before getting just under the lower then bang.. off I came. Gutted I lowered to the ground.
Ben was up next, he pretty much did the same as me.. And then Dan, However poor Dan manged to get right to the lower off, in fact the jug at the lower off, i guess victory went to is head because he popped.. i was gutted for him so i cant imagine how he felt, especially after working the line for so long.
With time getting on we decided to call it a day, all psyched to return next weekend and put this route to bed.. All I can think writing this is i bet poor Dan is still having sleepless nights over what went wrong... the words he screamed as he fell pretty much summed up his thoughts...
