2010 Knockin' on Heaven's Door E9 (Lead Flash) 22nd October 2010

I was a lot more scared than on both End of the Affair and Gaia. I'd say it's definitely worth E8. Placing the pegs for the first time on lead wasn't ideal. I placed them slightly to the left of where they should have been. I didn't trust them at all.

2018 Rainshadow 9a (Lead) 2nd May 2018

It was my 6th week of trying this year and 12th session. The Redpoint for me was pretty all out as usual. The crux is pretty close to the limit of my power, so doing it after climbing Raindogs requires a bit of mental tenacity. I guess you could say this is one of my strengths, as I'm almost as weak as Steve (McClure).
