i dont normally log anything but as an exception due to the nature of the assent...Back in 2012 I cleaned 'The Evening Light' in the Avon Gorge, with the help of my good friend Andy (tree surgeon) Holden. We removed 2 Transit vans worth of bramble, gorse and some hawthorn from its exit and face, as well as a fridge size block and lots of loose nasties. I also replaced 3 pegs on the route too. I attempted it later that year with Henry Castle but the conditions were piss poor and I retreated from just below the belay. I tidied it up in 2013 but due to a range of commitments and more poor weather I didn't manage 2 get on it again...until today! Again, I cleaned it up again 2 weeks ago and finally got my assent today, with the ever keen Jason Payne as a 2nd on both pitches, and what a route it is! This is the thorn in the crown, of all the Avon routes, quote " how adventurous can you get..." It is the Gorges most striking line, in my eyes, although sadly, very affected by the seasons. The climbing is delicate, yet strenuous in places, largely safe enough but with bold, unpredictable moments to keep you well on your toes! the top out is friable and to be approached with care! It is a truely unsung Avon classic and in my eyes deserves some stars when in nick. This has been a highlight of my climbing life so far and will not be forgotten in a hurry. Thanks you, all those who helped along the way, I hope you all have a great adventure leading it at some point to wink emoticon if you want a 2nd I'll be happy 2 help. X
