Four Pebble Slab, Froggatt.

Some of the chaps were at Froggatt on Saturday. Amongst other things they had a look at Three Pebble Slab 12m E1 5a 3*. It's right next to Four Pebble Slab, "Wow," I can hear you say, "An extra hold, it must be a doddle!"

Anyway after a little top-rope practice Mark finally discarded any remaining sense of self-preservation and led it.

Four Pebble Slab 12m E3 5c 1*. The picture speaks for itself. I don't think any of us have ever seen Mark looking quite this focused before. A brave lead and a fine achievement for a climber who has been pushing his grade ever since we have known him.
