/ Main Wall cyrn las
anyone done this route, MAIN WALL CYRN LAS. What gear is recommended, i.e multiple No 2 cams or found that i should have taken more numbers 1's etc etc.
Standard rack plus a few slings.
> A helmet
Very much recommended. There's a fair bit of loose rock here and there and a party below us pulled off a pretty big lump when I did it. Not to put you off though, it's a great route!
Yes indeed; that he plans on doing it.
Before, and during, the age of the internet haven't we all talked to someone in a pub about a route we planned to do and which they'd done and asked them about it?
> Yes indeed; that he plans on doing it.
I suppose so...but the answer has ofter been ' just get on it youth'.
If you're trying to tell me you've never asked anyone about a route you hope one day to do then you're telling an untruth.
The only difference here is that an opinion is being crowd-sourced rather than personally requested.
I have got some awesome photos on this route,
Rack= standard set+half set wires, 1-3 size cams get selection slings, and that should do it, pitches not overly long, very climbable, ie no thrashing up esoteric horror shows, a proper class climb ...enjoy
yer cheers mate, Im afraid in an open forum such as this you'll always get a nob head or two but for most i get really good comments that help me understand how to climb better. So thanks to yourself and others, trully
Hello....just wondering what sort of gear I need to do a low grade rock climb that gets climbed all the time and is well covered in loads of guide books?
You need to take some slings mate.....
Well f**k me...
Hope you have a great time.
Some people are new to climbing and make use of the Internet. No need to be a arse was there. You could have chose not to post and leave it to the ones who had something nice and useful to write really.
Just take a standard trad rack for a multi-pitch Hard Severe. If you're not sure what this is I'd counsel doing some other routes to find out; Main Wall is quite serious.
Enjoy... its arguably the best route in the Uk (Adverikie Wall might just pip it).
thats about where its at Jim and yes Im fairly new to climbing and i guess this will be my second ever lead on a HS. Thanks for yours and other helpful advice and encouragement. UKC is a the best site ever!
> Enjoy... its arguably the best route in the Uk (Adverikie Wall might just pip it).
The best route?! I think you mean best Hard Severe :) I've done dozens of routes in the UK that are better.
I started on gear like that too, then progressed onto the almost cube like nuts that Clog made. I still carry a Moac original (mainly as a lucky charm:) ) My first stickies (before my PA's) were a pair of Desert boots with a crepe sole, they didn't slide around like Tricounis!
.............and now we have bolts!!!!!!!
lol,yer i get it, i understand in days gone by that whitworth grade nuts were the in thing. You know I work a with range of interesting people, one of which is a 92 year old ex mountaineer. He's promised me some sort of gear provided i use it and I will, so if you see anyone dressed in tweed carrying what should belong on a deltic walking in the mountains that might well be me ;)
