Topic - Bridging the Converging Walls - The Chasm

Euge - on 30 Jun 2014
To all you brave climbers that bridged, no make that completed, the Converging Wall pitch on The Chasm, I salute you...

I was there on Saturday and could not leave the safety of the small ledge.
Bridging is not my best skill but how to bridge on overhanging holdless walls is beyond me, especially with no gear!!!
It was so frustrating as I could see the holds above. All I wanted was either a piece of protection or a good foothold to make the move, but no. Ended up lowering off and escaping the pitch.

Trouble is we escaped too far left and couldn't get back on :o(

A great climb but very mentally draining, protection is scarce to say the least. Would love to go back and hopefully some day I will.
