Went to the shed yesterday with the youth.
Draw lengths all seemed to be about right (tick)
Got on 1st Redpoint and climbed clean to just past the 3rd draw (tick)
Seepage was, however, a problem on the top bit. And I am too weak.
Can't seem to work out the easiest sequence on the top bit, as its all just variations on "can't do" and as such they are hard to differentiate between. I think I'm just going to have to get quite a bit stronger before I can really have another worthwhile redpoint, although just getting to the 4th draw would be probably worth a f7b ego tick on its own... so maybe in a bit I'll try that.
The youth had a sort of go at cleaning project red, but it needs a more workman like approach to bring it into nice climbing condition.
I also did the 1st boulder problem to grace the mini barrel, and buried my nice jumper under rubble securing the top out.
Never forget the first time.
