βeta: For full benefit, both for leader and spectators, this really must be an onsight lead, and not having seen any one else climb it! A fine route packed with fun and problems for a testing VS at 4c / 5a depending on your height.Chris

CrashMat Rob 27 Apr, 2011 2nd β Glynn’s been climbing well recently, so now was the time to push the grades a little. After spending way too long on Orpheus Wall and a DNF I thought The Keel might be a good one to get his enthusiasm back, good pro one hard move and a little bold walk to the top. His scream off relief and the big grin at the top said it all. You can see the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3vn_rtuCDk
