Its called soloing, its what people did before they became trendy and fashion victims.

Stupid, outdated and artificially dangerous mode of climbing.

Good effort! :-)
DIY is my bĂȘte noir, I've tried it a few times over the years and always backed off..... maybe this winter.

It is bloody great. Really nice climbing and the "resting mono" is lovely. Email me if you want any beta as I worked through a few options up there!

Saw you on this, good work getting it done! I was mostly impressed that you could still feel your fingers after puzzling out the sequences - it wasn't the toastiest evening...
