"I witnessed this fine ascent on Saturday afternoon and must say I was mightily impressed. I was most impressed at the ease by which Deb was doing the moves actually. She fell at the end a number of times and the drilled pocket was also slightly damp which only made things harder. This is a fine, fine ascent and I am very sure she is capable of doing harder."
