Howdy peeps,

Did a small amount of climbing at the Cathedral on the weekend. I've updated TheCrag so hopefully it makes it easier for everyone to understand. I think that "The Pinch" was a bit of a piss pull at 16. It was a super great climb and I really enjoyed it. Philly thought it was also fun but simultaneously ultra burly and also not a 16. I'd put it at 18 or 19.

Jaws was pretty burly, I think Wendy is right at saying that it's a hard18/easy19.

My fave climbs for the weekend would have to be Maharajah Chimney (gr13) and The Pinch (gr18-19)

Also, as a side note, we climbed Jaws and then Chimp Section, to which I found a triple glue-in rappel anchors out to the left. I thought I was a really crappy placement and quite awkward to get onto. It was all cool, but maybe they could have been put 2 meters to the right (closer to chimp section) and the could serve as a rappel station and anchor? In any case, I'm not quite sure that a 60m rope would get you to the gulch at the bottom of Jaws/Precious. We had a 70 so no worries.
