Amazing route, will go next time!

Shane Willis 25/Jul/15 DWS β

Had very good beta from Chris, and great advice on what not to do from Matt, who I'd just watched pump out and fall from the very top. Was so scared after watching that, the only reason I got on it was because I couldn't face the shame of Chris and Matt seeing me pussy out. Glad I went for it now! Stoked!

Made a very half-arsed effort. Will be back. Follow the first line of bolts you come to on the Maypole traverse.

Second go, with loads of Beta courtesy of Felix! The crux move onto the arete is truly fantastic. Fell off first try looking for the final jug. Felix said right, i went left - not smart. The water was cold. Might be 7b to onsight, but if you know the sequence it feels more like 7a. There are only 8 moves after all..
