Ticklists: The Main Wall Mal Challenge.

Dave Cundy 09/May/17 Lead O/S

Not obvious where p1 goes. Felt more like E1 5a. 2 pegs, a nut and an in-situ cam (dodgy flake) was all i got. Ran out of daylight, so abbed off.

Linked the first 2 pitches, not a very good route at all.

P2 + a bit over to other ab point. Nice climb - but lost a cam :-(

Maybe not quite worth a star, but well worth doing if you can handle some slightly dodgy rock. Abseiled from the bolts after pitch two.

Led P1, felt hard for 4c but may just have been the lack of gear. P2 good fun then abbed off.

Crux not as hard as wading through the undergrowth at the bottom. Middle pitch not bad at all, so I giv ethis a star. Bailed off rings top of P2 to make it home for dinner (and to avoid hawthorn shrouded death-blocks on P3).

Lead the first pitch - which I may have been slightly off route as it felt like 5a with zero gear. Mike backed off p2 as it was "rather loose". Abbed off.

Our first main wall climb. Half way up the loose blocks I decided I had gone far enough and belayed from a doubtful piton next to a Syringopora coral. Lucky we survived!
