This was Ian's first experience of one of Peak Scars more "thuggy" climbs...hence the stunned look on his face! If you look closely at the sling on the ledge you will see its attached to a Ex WD WW2, steel carabiner, still popular at that time [but very heavy]. How lucky we are today.

It must have been quite a hard route for its time. I had some of those steel krabs - weighed a ton! But you were grateful for them if you had nothing else.

Are you sure this is not frenesi ? Cannot remember a higher belay on Milestones (my fave peak scare route)

Hi Jas,
We were climbing Milestones which moves left from Ian...but I took a belay on Frenesi which was quite common in those days... its always nice to be able to look down on your mates and watch their struggles! Actually, on that day it was raining [Ian's wearing his waterproof], I took shelter in the Sentry Box and enjoyed the view.
Cheers, Tony
