Which is a problem when you're (rope) soloing.

I'd just retreated back to the anchor with my tail between my legs when some unprotected face climbing had felt a little too spicy. Focused myself, went back and pulled the moves, only to find i'd left the rack on the anchor...... I had a a few offset nuts and a some draws, and there was no way i was reversing those moves. Climbed a full 50 meter pitch with only small offset wires in soft sandstone patina face, half of which lifted out on me, and of course with an insecure, wide crack crux right at the top..... Ohh and the anchor was two drilled angles.

I ended up taking a daisy fall on bomber C1 territory 2 pitches further up coz i was so screwed.
