Just quick question, will i be ok on "the cracks" at Dinas Mot with a single rope? Has anyone else done it or are double ropes and absolute necessity.

Cheers

It does wonder a bit, but you could probably do it with a single, just extend all you runners with slings and dont link any pitches together.

In reply to mightytigerds2000: Getting up will be fine. There are a couple of more direct variations that would ease your passage. Penultimate pitch starts with a change of angle, moving up and right before rocking over onto a slab, so rope drag migh affect you there.

You might not be able to ab down the gully on a single rope. Some scrambling required?

Defintely be prepared to scramble down if you only have a single as it won't reach to the base of the trickiest bits but will get you down the first few steps easy enough


Have fun and enjoy the last pitch!

yea i did it on a single, was fine. think someone let us use there ab ropes. but have scrabeled down since, a dingle will get you past the trickiset bit. Alternative is to climb on and do Slow Ledge Climb.

You'll be able to do it - just 2 ropes are better on such routes.

In reply to mightytigerds2000: you can do this climb with a single rope, its all about the faff on the abseil where double ropes makes the descent a whole lot easier.

It's fine (as is Slow Ledge).
