Traditional ascent - boots, no chalk, (many cams)

cbeard 21/Apr/12 AltLd O/S

Many attempts at climbing the offwidth 'strenuous chimney' (MVS) as a squeeze were rather entertaining! At one point I removed my chalkbag for a little more space and reached another 10 cm higher. It was possible to body jam and leave all four limbs flailing in mid-air. We climbed in traditional style in hiking boots which made smears significantly less secure. We both have a lot more respect for the old generation climbers after this experience!

Did in 3 pitches 1&2 in 1 and managed to make a major knot! Kaushik didn't quite understand the concept of removing gear. Sorted it out though . Also stance before I lead last pitch K starts to remove the belay he is attached to! to quote him and his brilliant indian accent after I explain why that was wrong "that should be in a comedy". Brilliant guy.

Chris Sansum 29/Mar/09 Lead dnf

Abandoned halfway up pitch 2 after getting spewed out of the offwidth and taking a bit too long in general. Time was getting late and we had a long drive ahead, so decided not to keep trying. Seemed hard for a v-diff (an overhang followed by an off width?). Could be partly because I was trying climbing in big boots with minimal gear (no cams, a few nuts). Will be back to finish it off sometime!
