Nice one Andy! That looks like an absolute belter of a line! Well done.
well done Andi
I thought/assumed it might be the thin crack right of Ramshaw Crack - maybe that is the next Last Great Problem, or even the last Last Great Problem?
I have no memory of that conversation.
>At the end of the day, I've still not climbed Charlie's Overhang,
Good effort, anyway.
Awesome line Andi!!!glad you got it done!
This is not Twitter. I hear rumours he used his dog for aid and has secretly collected sponsorship to fund this gargantum effort from organisations who may be responsible for the death of kittens. Aside from that, it might be worth praise if enough VS leaders here agree. Plus its sure to be no harder than E5 6c as no one who can drink beer and be that big can climb that hard. I also think he climbed it out of condition and has ethical questions to answer.
Yes, you are right. I am sorry. Pity me ;)
Adam, I couldn't make that up. I still love you though.
>I also think he climbed it out of condition and has ethical questions to answer.
Was it him or the route that was out of condition? :-)
I hate to break it to you guys but I climbed this line several years ago but kept it a secret. It's low end HVS imo.
I remember watching a wonderful TV show called A Very Peculiar Practice, a black comedy based on a Uni campus GP, where a satirical poet gave up his job because reality exceeded his ability to invent stuff. Although fictiomal you just knew this rang true, even then before UKC and web forums.
On the other hand, you havent recently lost a kitten have you?
