My phrase was not in good english, as many other

I'm pretty sure if you only wrote in French, and I read French fluently, I would still feel the same way about your posts.

The front points are in good shape. I have had a quick discussion with a few people regarding the front points. If you contact Petzl they still have them, or you can order them under the p/n T23800. Hope that helps some of you out. The spare points I had were ordered last season and not used.

Saigon was my first "comeback" lead after wrist surgery and six months of rehab, back in '97.
I had this bulky brace on which made the wrist felt more stable but got in the way of side pulls and placing gear with that hand.  A little epic but it ended well on a BEAUTIFUL October day.

Nice first lead tradchik.  Great route John.  Hopefully not the last yours I get to climb! :)

The awkward mantle after standing there for at least 5 minutes and whining.  ;)

I am sure that the young women was as bold as a bolt., a quality in sport climbing.

just to clarify:my phrase means that she was very courageous to lead without protection a 5.8 move, even if it is what the book suggest. Her level of courage egual the level of solidity of a bolt.

On the other side, bold means: " (of a person, action, or idea) showing an ability to take risks; confident and courageous"

In sport, a beginner is a 5.9 climber...so did she take a risk? or is it the ethic to do that?

Classic 5.8, well protected, clean falls, great choice! Did you mantle or high-step? I always go for the high-step now but the first few times I did it it was always the awkward mantle.

great deal if the front points are in reasonable shape.
