Topic - Wings of Unreason, broken foot hold.

AlexanderRyanBanks - on 18 Feb 2013
It is with great regret that i must inform of the broken foothold on Wings of Unreason E4 6a at the Roaches. I was on an on-sight attempt on Sun 17th Feb having made the rock over and was stood around trying to fit a poor hex around the undercut. The foot hold broke and i fell unhurt.

Upon inspection the hold was visibly damaged, the overall size of the hold marginally smaller and uglier. The pieces that came off were shattered and crumbled easily; the rock is very soft.

I had another go, sending the route. The rock over move is no harder than before, I just hate to have damaged a classic route. With the rock being so soft i can only imagine more damage occurring with time but hopefully it will last.

So in all, i am sorry for breaking the hold, i was just unfortunate to be the culprit.

Alex.
