3 climbing segments in film - Slate, Cloggy and Gogarth - but can anyone name the routes?

No one talks about climbing in the same way as JD - pure genius and three lovely bits of film.

I think the Dervish is a mix of two routes?

Is it even the same cliff?

Great link, thanks. Particularly enjoyed his take on Cloggy: "you're trying to stay alive, trying to get a tiny wire into a crack, and you've got Thomas the Tank trundling up behind you".

I wonder if anyone can set me right on this, at about 36 minutes there a lady (Elizabeth) climbing, her top rope is a single black colour, I always thought that if a rope is a single colour (ie just black or white) it is a static rope, is this true? is she being top roped on a static rope?

In reply to DreadyCraig:
No, Beal do solid black Jokers. I can think of several other single-colour ropes that are definitely dynamic.

The Sun (E3 5c)

Hi there

I tried to private message you, but I got a bounce back. Anyway, from your log book it looks like you were climbing at Rhoscolyn last weekend. I was there too and I set up a camera on the opposite headland. I got a load of pictures (albeit fairly distant) of you guys climbing a pretty cool route. I have not checked out which one, but it might have been the Sun. Anyway message me if you'd like me to send them over.

Well that would be fantastic if ,,, somebody could ,,,

In reply to DreadyCraig:

I don't know why you got dislikes for that, it was a reasonable question. Most static (ie semi static) ropes are black or white, but some dynamic ropes are too.

Also, static ropes can be very useful for toproping. With a bottom rope set-up on a 30m pitch, the stretch and give is just perfect, whereas a dynamic rope would give many metres of stretch, making it dangerous near the ground.

The downside is that if you have a crap belayer and let slack into the system it can give a dangerous jolt, use with care.

AP, just Google it!

Agreed. And just for the record, it wasn't me guv!
