Lower-off maillons are thinning and rust-coloured. The krabs are ancient, rusty and incredibly fiddly. Great climb, managed to balance on 1 foot at one point.
Ben Taylor 1989 - Lead O/S - 12/Mar/13 with Alex wright

Right hand maillon is especially thin, forgot to pack spares. Krabs are surface rusting only but making them fiddly to operate. Top is hands free enough though to batter them into submission if needed.
