Day 1 6a onsight

today started with an alarm clock making an evil noise at 2.55am I breif considered sacking it off and getting a longer sleep. Then it hit me its TIME! I then crawled my fat arse out of bed and went down stairs. IU knocked on Vix's room door to a response of I am up!
Like a scene from shawn of the dead I went downstairs to wake Jonny up who was fresh faced looking like he was a new man (holiday excitement?).
Chris joined us and we stuck got ready a lulled tired group waiting for the arrival of JP and the lift to the airport. Around 3.30am we headed out on the hour long journey to Liverpool.
We got the airport at 4.30 checked in and travelled through to the duty free area where me and vix got a full English and I had a beer.
The flight was good and the train journey was fine after an arguement over the platform the train left from (me and JP were right). We eventually got to the olive branch around 2pm then a mad dash to the crag was enjoyed.
I got there keen as ever and got on lead first and onsighted a 4+ letting Brian, Tom, JP and Jonny lead up on my draws.
Next I set the draws in a 6a onsight again. Very high first bolt! nice little route took a bit of reading.
Later I got on a so called 6a+ absolutely no idea how that goes felt nails for 6a+ anyway I tried the magic sling trick and managed to get my gear back

Tick of the day went to vix who red pointed a 6b (formally 6c) looked nails. I am trying to save it for a flash.

Tomorrow am meeting up with Biscuit from UKC/B so will be interesting to see what happens
