/ Gear For Belay Above Aavalanche Wall - Curbar?
Going for a spot of shunting and don't fancy having to take my entire rack. Are there any useful big boulders?
If anyone can confirm this to a greater degree of certainty that would be even better.
A single set of nuts and rockcentrics/ hexes and a 16 ft sling should do nicely.
Pad the edge with a rucksack or some old wooden wedges.
Come on Rick, "some old wooden wedges"!!
He already said "don't fancy having to take my entire rack". It is 5 minutes from the road.
Anyway, shouldn't you be tucked up with Bob??
IIRC I used to top-rope Dolittle from cams #2 and #3 some way back, with a static line to the edge.
I found Avalanche Wall pretty straight forward to be honest Franco. Not really sure its worth headpointing...
Very true, very true.
