Proud lead! Did you write down the gear for me? I want an appendix B for Mouse's Misery. How did the lead feel? It looks a bit spicy. And how did you start the route? I can never tell exactly where Mouse's begins...

James was super solid on this lead. He made it look easy. Glad to see the pics I took turned out good. I climbed halfway up Full Stop and anchored into the 2 trees on the ledge. It was a great spot to take the pics.

Thanks guys.

Kayte - Appendix B has been created (which reminds me that I need to e-mail you Appendix A one of these days), the bottom is a bit spicy, but the crux is well protected. I started just to the left of the chunky wide crack, and used only the smaller diagnol crack systems on the face, it all felt pretty solid.

The route "Big Deal" just to the left is also a very good 10ish lead without the run-out start the Mouse's Misery has if you stay right on route. I think a good combination is to lead lower part of "Full Stop" then climb up a right in MM so that gear can be had early on...

I love it: being run out, with NO GEAR on your harness. Looks badass and so very DL.
