You really should wait for routes to come into condition. ;-)

In 20 years I've never seen it actually freeze, it comes out of a 1 mile long tunnel!

Do I spy a gear placement? are you telling me someone actually lead this on trad?? sick!
MRJ - 12/Feb/07
Yes we led it, but split it into 2 piches. Mostly due to the cold! Phil took a lob from the first pitch, I took one from the top of the 2nd (crux?) the pointing was less well worn at the top. Neither of us hit the pool at the bottom, but it's probably classed as one of the biggest bouldering mats available ;-)

How completely bizzare! Like it. How did you know placements were gonna be there?
Maestro - 22/May/07
Looking at the state of the pointing, we thought there must be some gear. Thankfully there was and it was tested by both of us ;-)
