Stepping it up
I was back to Downunder with James yesterday but this time we skipped the Eastern Block warm up. Sausages 5.10c is now the warm up. I managed to send it clean on lead by using the no hands rest just before the last bolt. Resting and working the "pump" out during these overhanging climbs is something I need to work on. After Sausages, James worked Pizza Slut 5.12d and I toproped Pita de Roma 5.11a. After resting I tried a lead attempt of Pita de Roma but came off in the crimpy crux two moves from the end. It was more a mental failing then anything else. We finished the day on El Ninjo.
