That's my question in the title.... I've only got 2 warthogs and 3 ice hooks.

Best routes in that grade that are manly on ice or rock pro or is that enough?

Or... anyone in either edinburgh or blantyre why have a few warthogs that could lend tonight?

Cheers

That's plenty...3 hooks, wow! Should get you up most routes.

Hoe about Recess Route, plenty of other gear there.

Yeh reckon yeah?, not done a route there before.

Recess Route would be cool then, we'll see how we get on.....

Also R.e next weekend, I've got a wedding on the Sat but Sun would be cool.

Cheers Heike.

In reply to oly-l: Recess route is definitely possible with no turf gear at all. I had none when I did north wall groove either though maybew a single bulldog would be worth taking on that. Don't remeber needing any on right angle gully either.

I usually only carry 2 hooks (one big one small)in the southern highlands and perhaps a third if the route has a reputation for boldness. You have plenty of turf gear, but look for rock gear first (got any pegs?) - it's much more likely to actually hold a fall.

That's cool, cheers for that. All good to know.

Yeh got pegs. All good to know, I was under the impression that you needed some stupid amount of turf gear for routes on the cobbler, seems not to be the case, Cheers.

I can't think of any V or VI on Cobbler, where turf gear would be necessary! Size 10 Hex yes.

Yeh fair enough. Sounds like getting gear on routes up there isn't as much of a problem as i'd imagined it to be...

Cheers.
