What's the scariest lead that you've ever done? 9-Apr-2009 At 3:23:30 PM Dave C
Death Trap, E5 5b,4a,5b,5a Mousetrap Zawn, Gogarth in Wales, October 1990.
Only grade 18-ish but the crux is a slanting, overhung groove where the holds are ribs of chalky quartz stuff protruding from something with the appearance of mouldy cheese and "protection" mainly from slings hooked over spikes and ribs! The 4a pitch is actually scarier being a short, unprotected traverse on what feels like solidified mud - nice!
Done for the thrill of ticking a true Mick Fowler classic and in the end worth every minute.
