Heyimmaria - 2nd - 01/Mar/14 with Gedmina Šumakaryt&#279;

One of the scariest experiences I've had. The climb seemed really nice, full of features, little ledges and a bit slabby, so it really seemed very doable. However as I started climbing, I've noticed that there were no gear placements at all.. So on a 50 ft route there were two gear placements and both of them were no further than a third way in. So the rest of the route I've climbed with no gear. Wanted to give up few times, but could not. In the end Ollie helped me to get up on the last rock. The whole climb took ages, at least half an hour.. Then Mary nailed it in probably 10 minutes :)

First half of climb was nice but had to traverse right at top due to how overgrown the route was with some poisonous looking berries.
