Good to see Bubbs taking care of the approach pitches so Hamish could be warmed up for the steep bit.

I wouldn't advice going anywhere near it!

But since you asked we took:

2 60 metre 8mm ropes
6 cams up to 3.5"
1 set of wires
3 pegs
4 screws
9 quickdraws
a screamer
3 slings.

Apart from that we each carried 2 litres of water, Cliff Bars and Gels, a belay jacket, spare gloves and mitts and a head torch.

Nice one bubbles - who would have thought the hotel bathroom was the most dangerous part of the expedition ;)

Not bad after having your Chamonix season castrated ;-)

Nice one guys. Tom do you know how the Warwick guys got on with their trip out there?

Good work lads - not the hardest new route in the world this year but it's inspirational that 2 young lads got of their asses and did something like this.

Awesome.
