/ Cobbler, best V or VI when lacking turfing pro?
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?
That's plenty...3 hooks, wow! Should get you up most routes.

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.
