What's with this "sent" rubbish? Surely he climbed it? Anyway, I'll watch the video after my tea. boB

Phew! Al Phizacklea and myself went up to Cam Crag years ago and looked at this line, with definite emphasis on "looked". Everything just sloped the wrong way and the whole thing looked way out of our league, really hard climbing and serious with it. Good effort from Dave. boB
