Route in South Africa looks awesome !!!!
Good effort Mary.
Even if there's nothing in the rumour, it's a fine one! I fancy a pint of Mild V.S...
Amazing route... just a few weeks after an amazing new ice route on his own Scafell East... Dave Birkett just keeps on surpising us!
That is pretty impressive, and by the sound of the report, it didnt take him much effort either.

They look some pretty impressive and strenuous moves that Mary is doing on "Mary Jenning following pitch 4" photo... bludy 'ell
Hats off, and a celebratory whisky, to all the team,

Good effort Dave. looks steep. Was it onsight? looks like a fair few pitches of E6 with an E7 crux pitch?

For many years I have driven past these massive face, kinking my neck and annoying the misses by exclaiming that there must be a "way to get a route through that stuff."
Now I can try and identify where it is and annoy her more by moaning that I will never be good enough to get up it!
MASSIVE hands I reckon.
