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

I'm sure it would go with a vigorous brushing Martin

Thanks. Looks feasible but probably more than E3 and structural stability is uncertain.

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
