Hidden - 16/Aug/14

Total mission to get a 78 year old(thought she was only 70) lady up and down a sea cliff who seems forgotten how to do rather useful things such as abseil. First thing she does when gets to the top is complain it was too easy. Not a drop of gratitude. Complains for the rest of the week about the lack of difficulty hoping someone would take pity and take her up Devils Slide.
