Topic - Grade III solo

Milesy - on 27 Feb 2013
Keep flaming and trolling to a minimum please.

I can climb III and I am confident on steep grade I and II ground when consolidated, and the two grade III routes I am desperate to do are SC Gully and Good Friday Climb and I fancy soloing one of them. SC being the less serious out of them. I soloed up to the ramp on SC 2 years ago and backed off as it was dripping and stones were falling out the gully.

Now I have demonstrated to myself that I am more confident soloing easy ground with a decent sleep than I am leading it with no or little sleep and that with an easier and later walk in, I think I could try something harder, with the benefit of time saved through no rope work. If I havent had a sleep I struggle to commit to something.

Now with current conditions being nice and consolidated am I being reckless in my thinking?
