Awesome yes..but no mention of me redpointing Rose Coronary earlier in the afternoon....very unbalanced reporting imo.
To be a bit more helpful - I don't know if you have climbed at malham or how much you have done there, but all of the routes are super technical. There are virtually no holds that are on the 'right way up' - nearly everything is an undercut or a sidepull/gaston - so even though the rock on many of the routes looks quite similar (especially from the ground), they all climb very differently. I've certainly never been on any of the routes in question but from having seen people on them, they look anything but 'samey' in terms of how they climb.
and i can see that there are likely to be some impressive ticks from the girls there this season too.. can't wait!! (that doesn't include me by the way :O).. but i would love to see UKC reporting on that as and when it happens
Was it Jon who got Bat Route done? Same guy that fell off on the headwall twice on Saturday?
How dry was Something Stupid/Unjustified looking?
"and now Jordan has shown that it's possible for a Brit to get in on the action too."
i thought he was a Saffa.....not that there's anything wrong with that :p
i was on the left handside last night so didn't pay alot of attention to SS/unjustified but sarah was on frankenstein and i had a general look around and the righthand side didn't strike me as looking wet.
we slept in the van last night in the village, it chucked it down all night and this morning.. it's bound to cause significant seepage at the crag.. but i'm no expert... i'll be back there tomorrow regardless
You ever been to Malham?
