2018 Once Upon a Time in the Southwest E9 (Lead) 24th May 2018
2019 Mind Control 8c (Lead) 24th February 2019
Prinzip Hoffnung E9 (Lead) 2nd April 2019

The route is a dream line, one that you see pictures of your climbing hero's on but never think you will actually do it yourself. Great insecure moves with a safe but long fall. Coming from Oliana it was a nice change of angle! It has been hot so I first tried to lead the route by head torch, but today got up to try at first light which was better... I was just being lazy. I had 3 sessions just on top rope and then had 4 lead tries over an evening/night and a morning so took some good falls.
