Ticklists: Crack apprenticeship - Highland North.
|Climber||Date||Style||Notes & Partners|
Patrick lead P1 of Vlad the Impaler, the gear on my rope cleaned by Mhari, and I seconded on the line of this route. Then I lead P2. A bit exciting (aka stressful) at the final hard move, as I was a way above the last gear, seriously regreting I hadn't place one at the top of the crack. Decent route, only spoiled by the massive ledge between P1 & P2, the same as Vlad the Impaler.

1st pitch was awesome!
excellent first pitch. 2nd pitch not as well protected as guide would suggest after the first crack with some lichenous holds. With a bit more traffic would be very good
More like a yo yo ascent as a pebble foot hold broke on crux so started again. Great route though, lots of good climbing in a great position, needs a bit more traffic though, don't think it gets much! First pitch is lovely E1/2 and includes best bit of hvs...
