/ T. Rex rockfall
If anyone is interested in trying a new first pitch for T.Rex following the collapse of the original slimy chimney there’s a picture of it here https://www.ukclimbing.com/photos/dbpage.php?id=330032
Thanks for the offer Kevin but I'm doing my hair that day.
I'm sure it would go with a vigorous brushing Martin
Thanks. Looks feasible but probably more than E3 and structural stability is uncertain.
Thanks! But disappointed they didn’t call it Rise of the Mammals
I can relax now. After years of wondering if I could get into the physical and mental place to have a go at the route, it is almost a relief (tinged with disappointment) that it has well and truly been taken out of my reach.
I assume you took that from a kayak. Interesting to see it. I am sure it will be done. Probably after abseil inspection / removal of further loose rock. On the plus side at least you do not need a big cam anymore.

On the plus side, there isn't a horrible slimy chimney ruining a perfectly good route anymore
That’s right Mark from my kayak. When I led TRex I didn’t have big cams ( they may not have been available then?) just an early titanium rigid friend 0.5 placed above the off width, pretty sure I wouldn’t have the courage these days
Our Friday Night Vido this week follows the climbing of Mickey Schaefer, put together from ten years of archive footage from Mickey's climbs. These days, Mickey is known as 'the guy who can't watch' from Free Solo, but his climbing career extends further...
