/ zig zag
You obviously didn't zag
Polite conversation + a hint about Lakes conditions.
You'll have done Zag Zig then?
I have - several times. Doesn't sound like Mockerkin was off route. After the first long traverse, you ascend a short easy angled slab which brings you to the upper part of May Day Cracks. Up this for a few metres, then there's a big easy angled gangway on the left to the top. You don't follow May Day Cracks all the way to the top. Simples.
Surely this should be in the UKC News forum?
So there IS a route called Zag Zig?!
Any news on that crack? I am expecting to read that a block the size of a bungalow has fallen off...
> So there IS a route called Zag Zig?!
probably -- but I've been known to suffer from dyslexia -- or just getting my wucking fords muxed ip.
If one of that size had gone, I'd probably have been able to hear it down here in Lancashire.
> You'll have done Zag Zig then?
>> You have sussed us then. I must admit that we Zag Ziged. Please don't tell anyone. To none UK climbers, "sussed" means that you are suspected of doing wrong.
