UKC Testing - 2014

Absolutely cracking route which we'd failed on a couple of days earlier (too late and too slow). Led p1-4 (1-3 in guide)and the chimney exit pitch which induced much thrutching, swearing and necessitated bag hauling - great fun! Are additional pitches/ belay stations not marked in the Classic Climbs guide. Also traversed left near the top earlier than that guide suggests, from a obvious belay ring. The next pitch was bolted so presumably some sort of alternative finish. 14 pitches in total.

good route with easy climbing up to mvs then 2 harder cruxes at hvs. fine views and an easy walking approach and descent.

All to ourselves. More like 5 hours. Crux for us was penultimate pitch leaving the cave, fatigued. Really enjoyed the climbing. Nice easy descent on mainly well worn paths. Led P2,3,4,5,7,8,9, tried 10 backed off, and 11.

Hailstormed off after 4 pitches, shame as the crux 5th pitch looks fantastic, but we will return.
Elsier - AltLd dnf - 22/Jul/12 with Koon

Hailstorm after 4th pitch and had to ab off along with 9 Italians! Was gutted we couldn't complete the route as I was really enjoying it.

...got stuck in chimney...otherwise great climb
RocKalina - AltLd - Jul/12 with MM

A cracking day out. dropped my belay plate from the top of the second pitch - could have abbed off and re-started but we were already a bit late so pressed on and completed the route with an improvised krab brake, which worked fine. Led the crux corner pitch on one in-situ peg and had some uncertainty about the route of the penultimate pitch to/past the cave - proved to be quite a sting in the tail... with Chris Lyness and Pierce Ferris, who also swung leads.
ripper - AltLd - Jun/12 with Matt Chap

First multipitch in Dolomites. First route with Jack. I lead the two chimney pitches and got slightly stuck in both to Jack's great amusement (filmed). Lovely route and the first step on the road to the ultimate aim... (slightly tricky route finding over easier grade III ground just over half way up)

Pitches swung... Ben then me, 11 in total, with me finishing off (Nice crux pitch to cave and amusing chimneying out of the cave)
slacky - AltLd O/S - 21/Jul/11 with Ben

Followed a line of new bolts to the left of the real start for the first few pitches (6b ish climbing in places). As a result we ended missing the grand diedre pitch which is a shame as it looked good from the bottom. Good route for a short day and great views of the mighty Tofana
