Move from the first break onto the nose required some commitment.

Off he went to climb this one with Jim belaying……Everyone’s attention was diverted from Mike’s climb by a chap having a go on an E4 5c climb just next to Mike. So as Mike struggled up this exposed arête, with its ‘tricky little move’ all eyes were on the chap who decided to fall off just as Mike reached the crux of his climb! No-one saw Mike’s epic and he even had to shout down to Pete to get his camera out and take a picture (just to prove he’d done it of course!).
