15 new routes including the big over hanging wall. Line 51, the 2 harder lines are laybacks. I found these hard because I am not used to laybacking facing left. The routes were put up for us by Mark Pretty which he climbed on completion of his days work, proving it is possible to do them. 27 with its easier routes are designed for lap training.

More on Monday from Steve McClure who is doing bouldering panels 1, 2, 5 &6.
