gear is a bit psychological at times
Babika - 2nd O/S - 13/Sep/14 with Peter Neden

Lovely. Placed more gear than I thought I would though mostly of the token variety. Sky hooks prob useful. First time climbing a kink band.

Lumbering Oaf - 2nd O/S - 08/Jul/13 with Paul

this time around i managed to arrange a bit more gear although in the event of a slide down the slab,this would only slow one down with enough time for a new plan to be hatched maybe!!!;-)hehehe

not the most technical climbing but very limited protection. some small cams will help

style of climbing: placed some pro to secure abseil rope on this diagonal grove on the rock slab and then used the usual ascender to secure the climb up. (self - belay)

a great slab climb with minimal oppurtunities to place protection (a good selection of micronuts would ease the fear factor , well seconded by john.
rockpool - Lead O/S - Sep/07 with john

slack rope- we didn't have the right gear for the lead or I'd have seconded it properly! Nice and balancy.
