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. ;-)

Amazing.

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.

In reply to UKC Articles: Epic. Great article full of adventure. Nice to see that relative punters (7b+ traverse is definitely at the very limit of punter) can achieve such awe inspiring stuff.

What heroes. Also, because it's fantastic and it isn't included in the article, here's a link to another photo from their trip: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=206607&lgn=63351

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!
