After failing all over the New Quarry Traverse. Felt like a staircase (which it is!). Someone has installed a rope on the bulge below easy slabs.

Generally followed the line of least resistance, I presume I ended up doing this? Finished up a broken slab.

Topped out about a minute before a blood red sun sank down below the horizon. Superb!

Only up this time, liked Easy Slabs again! I swear the move over the bulge on the penultimate pitch is harder than Mod but maybe I'm not doing it right.

To get home. Annoyingly on topping out I realized that I left my shoes at the base of the crag.

pheotleyr 01/Jun/14 Solo rpt

Too knackered to even think about climbing anything harder than this after doing the Earl of Perth. Thought I'd show this to Mike for a relaxed finish of the day.

All thoughts of doing Limbo after EoP evaporated. We settled for this as a comfortable end to the day. Peter descended into Hades Cave for a brief recce. Headtorches next time

Mistaking soloed first pitch not realising where we started. Took Rich up on his first outdoor climbing experience. In shoes not stickies.

From the top I watched two crazy guys cycling down the huge slab on the other side of the river. Interesting...

I don't think I have ever climbed 3 pitches in less than 10 minutes before.

Desperate for an ice cold drink from the ice cream van on the downs. More I do this now the more I like it.

a quicker way than the path to get up to the downs for an ice cream

Stanners 06/Mar/12 Solo rpt

Definitely did not skip school with Andy to go climbing today. 1st half of route belayed by Andy (basically soloing) and climbed parallel together up the top slab on 2nd half of the route.

Used as a way to reach the top belay of great central route. Where Jack was waiting with rope drag being too much for me to second him. Ended up abseiling off a very small tree to retrieve the gear. scary. Quite good route considering it is only a mod.
