As Cheese and Raff were too busy mugging me off to belay, despite repeated requests, I felt slightly aggrieved prior to this ascent. "Why don't you just solo it Sutty", Cheese said. So I did. Funny thing was, Cheese bottled the lead at the ledge afterward and had to be rescued with a lowered line... Curbar 2 - Sutcliffe 1.

honourableschoolboy 31/Jan/10 Lead dog

Having devoted my lunch break to mugging off ian "solo" sutcliffe, I watched my comrade wobble up with a few grunts... However got spooked on the return mug by the flying ginger squirrel and wasnt in my happy place on that ledge. Solid gear in the break but very run out at the top, easy moves if you dont have sutcliffe surround sound putting you off...Thanks to Raff -a true pal, who saved me, whilst sutty was doubled over laughing. Curbar 2- Cheesy 1.
