Great article and sounds like loads of fun. However someone needs to make a comment about student groups overcrowding honeypot crags and they were fixing ropes. ;-)
I love the idea of 3 cash strapped students who'd never done it before going for a goal like that - and doing it.
Well done guys. Memories for a lifetime from that trip.
Looks like awesome rock, are there easier routes in the area? :-)
Oh man I am so glad I lost my bet with Rob regarding the end result of this trip. Well done.
Hah, what did Rob bet? There isn't that much easier free-climbing but you could certainly find fun stuff to do if you were prepared to aid more of it.
Thanks all for the comments, they're very encouraging!
Great effort, well done
Epic! Well done guys. Thanks for the write up and pleasure to read.
