This was the last (45th) of our 45 climbs in a day birthday extravaganza. By this stage I'm getting a bit frazzled (if you've climbed one Roaches arete or slab you've climbed the lot - or so it began to seem!). Unintentionally scared my wife (standing at the top)when a few feet from the top I uttered a sigh and she thought I was about to fall off :(

Having climbed this yesterday I don't think you are supposed to be using the crack on the left, the climb is only severe if you use only the right hand crack!

Hmm, makes it rather an 'artificial' climb, then? Though, by that stage of the day, I'd have used anything (human pyramid of boy scouts, rope lowered from above, disorientated hibernating limpets) to get to the top as easily as possible! :)
