Topic - worst beta you ever got?

derryclimbs - on 20 Apr 2013
On a recent trip abroad I was given some local beta which was completely inaccurate (or more probably my understanding of it but I wont admit to that!). Turned what was supposed to be a quick 2 pitch classic into a 3 hour epic going up a face 3 grades harder than we had anticipated. Worst thing is that we disregarded what the guidebook said because of what we'd been told about new bolted routes being on the face.

Anyway, we laugh about it now but was very frustrated at the time. many expletives used, sun burn on the back of our legs, a touch of bloody knuckle syndrome and a tonne of sweat! But hey, it cant all go to plan. right?
