Good to see Bubbs taking care of the approach pitches so Hamish could be warmed up for the steep bit.

> (In reply to UKC News) Hey Tom. Congratulations. Can I just ask you what rack you'd advise taking for it?

I wouldn't advice going anywhere near it!

But since you asked we took:

2 60 metre 8mm ropes
6 cams up to 3.5"
1 set of wires
3 pegs
4 screws
9 quickdraws
a screamer
3 slings.

Apart from that we each carried 2 litres of water, Cliff Bars and Gels, a belay jacket, spare gloves and mitts and a head torch.

Nice one bubbles - who would have thought the hotel bathroom was the most dangerous part of the expedition

Not bad after having your Chamonix season castrated

Nice one guys. Tom do you know how the Warwick guys got on with their trip out there?

Good work lads - not the hardest new route in the world this year but it's inspirational that 2 young lads got of their asses and did something like this.

Awesome.
