Walewska*** VS 4c
[Chris on Walewska, 2 kb]Arguably the best VS in the quarry. Take a good supply of big stuff. Climb steeply to the first ledge then step right and climb to a spike at the start of a hand-traverse. Follow this left to gain the exit cracks. A more direct start up the steep crack just right is a strenuous 5a. © ROCKFAX

Oh boy, made a real mess of this. Missed the thread I was told about by my partner and instead threw a sling over the jug before the traverse. Got an iffy friend in the traverse crack and hung out for ages placing a nut at the end of the traverse. Only for it to fall out almost as soon as I began to climb the final crack. Made the bold decision to race to the top and put a terrible friend in the crack before topping out. If I had fallen off the top things would not have been pretty. Fortunately for me I climbed the thing really well and never looked like falling off.

Last climb of the day - a lot of fun. Be careful not to dip your hands in birdshit though. A nesting pigeon hung around for most of the climb, until I nearly used it as a handhold. Hand traverse was fun - small footholds are there if you look for them. I jammed my way along the hand traverse, which felt nice and secure (only possible with big hands, it seems). I laced the traverse with gear to protect the second, but this is not strictly necessary as you can belay above the middle of the traverse.
