Bit of an essay for this one. Finally and unexpectedly did the end of this (tied up and swallowed a few weeks ago). Had a midweek session to work the traverse and link then another where I got close but failed. Baby two was due in a week so thought that might be my last chance for months (and possibly the year if the weather gets bad as the start is tidal and never dries when it gets cooler). Heard Craig was going down today so decided to take one last chance and take my two yr old down and have a go using Craigs mats. 5 go's later I thought it was not going to happen. Ticked the finishing hold one go but last attempt was poor. Skin was sore, tired and tide nearly in. Decided/persuaded to have one last go literally as the waves were just washing to the start mat and first foot hold and aware Craig was unsuccessfully trying to stop my 2yr old dragging the other mat away as I was traversing in. Somehow made it by the skin of my teeth leaving a bit of blood behind. Chuffed to climb the last boulder problem I had to do at Thirlstane with 5 days before baby 2 comes. Time to relax.. cheers Craig for the mats, psych and wrestling with Ruaridh long enough for me to get it done!
