Year Climb Grade Style Ascent Date
1987 Inclination E5 Lead 1987

Inclination' from '87 - steep stuff but much easier and safer than next-door Exclamation with its 2 small wires and an upside-down peg between you and falling onto or past the ledge. Those French rock boots were great on edges but took an age to get any feel. They were just the job on Geronimo at Shepherds but a bit extreme for most stuff until they were well-worn and the tinny insole was pulled out! [1]
