Lead the first pitch. Excellent climbing, albeit with quite a few run outs with little protection. I'd recommend a lot of small nuts.

Red Rope last climb of season.
Started with Clarian (Colin Lead) and then across lunchtime ledge and up Bobs Climb (Evan Lead)
Colin, Tracey, Evan, Learnado, Me, Dafydd.
Jooles had a go but backed off, as did Dave fisher. Was very wet at the time. Andrew stayed at the bottom. I was last up Clarian and, although the route was still damp, it wasn't too bad. I used my headtorch for both routes though. Felt good and confident and thought Bobs climb was superb, must have another look in the daylight! Then off to the Nova for a few pints.
