/ High Man (Lake district)
The old (larger) mallion has been left up there (mostly because I'm weak and couldn't undo it).
If it was the large one on the blue tat then yeah it might have been yours. I didn't have anything quite that big so I managed to squeeze a smaller one around what I considered to be the most solid anchor up there. A 10mm will run through the metal no problem (I abbed on an 8.9mm)
I used to downclimb that bit, thought it was about Diff.
