Monster few days for James. 4x E6, 2x E7, E8
Is that sort of thing unprecedented, even by his standards?
I don't know whether it was hitting the route or not, it was quite windy so it may have been blowing straight over the top, but whilst I was taking those point blank photos it was drizzling as well - I'm quite surprised any of them came out to be honest...
It's quite a coincidence really, we were walking out into the Range and it started drizzling, so we said we would wander as far as Stennis Ford and see if it got any better, and arrived to see someone on the resting holds on From a Distance. Got the camera out when I saw him move left rather than keep going up. If the weather had been a bit worse and we had turned around we would have missed it!
Anyway brilliant bit of news and good skills on the Naxos flash, a mate of mine headpointed it last summer, and despite being a pretty bold climber said it would be scary to onsight!
