Rockfax Description
10m. The elegant slab on the left edge of the buttress is gained steeply and climbed precariously. As good and as unprotected as it appears from below. © Rockfax

Out of touch with my current ability after a long break. Fantastic climbing, perfect moves. Not a thought unrelated to the task at hand. As I execute the first wrong sequence - the first move that feels awkward, my right foot leaves a small wire placement I hadn't seen from the ground. So close. Too far from the ground. Perfect DWS falling technique........ SNAP! I will be back
