Gillhams Crag
6:40:35 PM
I am interested if anyone has done the climb directly below the rap anchor on smoke wall at Gillhams crag it goes at about 23! I would be interested in any feedback!
And just for everyone's information I put up some rap station above cloud 9 (a very nice grade 22 on Red Rain wall) to stop a very dangerous walk off and further erosion in the area

Is that the crap bolted thing squeezed in just left of the 18/19 trad route? Looks thin, contrived and nasty.

It would be worth doing if it were the only thing on the wall. It is pretty contrived and donesn't have all that much climbing independent of Mind if I Smoke. Fun climb tho.

It is left and totally indipendend of DYMIIS and right of the 18 trad route and starts on the pockets and then up the crack line to finish at the rap anchor and has 3 bolts.
its not the crap 22 to the left.

yeah - it was a very nice technical climb. Highly recommended. Take some RPs (#1 & #2) & small cams to supplement the bolts. Does it have a name??

Sorry for not replying sooner James/kent but have been off the air, but thanks for the positive feedback I couldn't remember if I put 3 or 4 bolts in it, but I was happy with the route and was interested if anyone else has done it, and it is quite sustained to the end!
I called it "But I didn't inhale" and Steve Chapman seconded it with me! Ta Rob
