Yes, that's not how to do it!

Is that at the second peg? A decent climb but very short if I recall correctly.

First bolt Sean, there are no longer any pegs in the route at all (if there ever were?) which is about 8m up. This is the one that covers the crux sequence where most people seem to get a bit lost due to taking the wrong, albeit more obvious line. The difficulty is short lived (about 5m) but the entire route is standard single pitch length, about 20-25m.

Sorry Ian, I mean bolt. This dementia thing....

It could easily have had pegs in before my time - nothing to be sorry about!

The moment before it all goes wrong: so perfectly captured!

Who doesn't want to know what happened next? :) Fine capture.

Thanks for the positive comments :) I should probably say that Joe was fine, although his wallet took an injury as he had to get a new lid.

ouch, I only just spotted the rope behind the leg...
