It's been a long time coming but Leah finally managed to crush Tourniquet - font 8a/V11 at Kentmere this week.


By the light of our Petzl headtorches and a well placed lantern, she cruised through the moves on her first go of the season - bloody strong effort.

It is awesome to see her back on form, I know that it feels pretty rad for her too. Success and progression are very special - especially if you've been having a tough time in the lead up.

If you would like more detail on the ascent then this short article from UKC covers it >> UKC

I want to share a couple of the photos that we managed to get over the course of her attempts last year and also her successful 'send' this week. There are more in the 'image bank' ... I think I'll save those for a rainy day.

Finally, if you like what you see here, be sure to share it on all of your favourite social media channels. As always, I am eternally grateful for all the support you kind folk give me.

Thank you and enjoy | LL

NB: All the daylight shots are from summer last year, the super-grainy dark shot is from the actual ascent (shot on an iPhone) | LL
