Nice history. Any links to the clip Macca?

I was relating to someone the other day the feeling of being on Gigantor on a freezing cold Blueys day with sweat running off me all over as I re-lead a pitch after taking a factor 1.9 fall three placements from the top, ripping everything out on the way down bar a lone cam. Interesting I never had a repeat taker from anyone I enticed on those climbs.
