xusa 27/Oct 2nd O/S

A very traditional end to a Langdale enchainment. A little wet and still a struggle. I pulled on gear

Only a diff but the hardest thing I've led all year. Any Diff leader doing this may be in for surprise especially if it is wringing wet in all of it's muddy slimefest esoteric glory. A nice struggle and a good way to end the day, enjoyed in that perverse way.

Lead main pitch. More scared sheep at the top made for an uncomfortable stance to try not to scare them any further!

Great fun. Felt worthy of the addition of Very to the grade.

In big boots during heavy rain. There was a waterfall coming down it. Very very difficult. Solid lead from Colin. Perversely one of the most enjoyable things I've ever done...

In mountain boots, chimney pitch was wet and very slippery, really had to fight my way to the top! A good finish to a proper mountain adventure to occupy a wet day!!

Paul led the chimney (made harder by having packs on our backs), then went up final 2 pitches of Cook's Tour with me leading.

with Paul Derrick
Bokonon 29/Jul/06 AltLd O/S

Nice particularly if the chimney is taken direct, some guides suggest not including the second section on the chimney - do it it's a great bit of chimney. Very good value at Diff.

First pitch only. It was dripping wet, and everyone else refused to follow! So I abbed off the tree.
