A lot of chalk on Green Death!
Sean Kelly - 09/Feb/12
The chalk was falling quite steadily by then - cold chalk!

Looking at this again, it could even be a FWA - First Wizbit Axcent!

Did he actually lead it all the way to the top?!

He climbed it through all of the crux sections to the jug at the start of the easier slabby finishing bit. Falling from that means a ground fall which wasn't considered to be in the spirit of birthday celebrations!

I was there, and I have to say the ascent was rather impressive!!!

Should you have been at Senen on Banana Flake?

The fancy-dress climber is the king of the nerds. Zany.

We all know that bananas have a brown bit at the bottom .. what about this one?

I trust he didn't peel off and I love the sugar icing effect on the crag: a real milestone in puddings.
