Ken Jackson on Last Post, Whitestone Cliffe. 1966.
© Tony Marr, Jan 1966
Route: Last Post
Camera used: Boots 35mm Compact. Scanned colour slide.
An early repeat in bitterly cold and wet conditions... in fact, the shiny black rock was dripping with water.
Note the lack of runners... we only had one large home made chock and Ken was saving it for bulge above. Big Hexes were not invented at that time...climbing was a much more hazardous activity in those days!

I didn't have much more than that when I led it in 2007! Managed to wriggle inside the crack at its widest and put a sling round a chockstone.
