No
We climbed and explored independently.
New eyes will bring some fun I am sure.
Get back to me in June on my return.

Fun climb
You are asking a lot, nearly 23 years ago, but the most noise came from the last few moves.
We had fun putting all the routes up ...now is the time for the next generation, I will be there to check out your routes.
You should enjoy the crux on Caitlin Sam, it is lower down but took me a few trips to tick.

challenging with good moves is fun to me

i dont think i'm anywhere near a 26 outdoors or any good at roof climbs but hey, you got to try, and you got to practice them to get good at them dont you!

still unsure about it though, the bolts seem pretty rusted.

We have bolted some prejects (ie 5) there over the last few weekends...please note all are CLOSED projects and some bolts are NOT glued in as the rock is a bit sodden from all the recent rain and a couple had water dribbling out a few minutes after the hole was drilled...anyway all have tags on first bolts and are closed projects...just warning of the non glued bolts in case some people want to do a sly rambo ascent...you have been warned :)

Hi Rod. Well done ! What sort of grades are they likely to be ? Much easier than the existing routes I assume ?

I imagine there's some much tougher grades on the small roof/lip part?

will get down and check out your work soon when i get a chance.

hopefully the rain eases off though.

Dunno - Phil wasn't very specific as to where most of his crags were. Given the booze involved in some of the stories I'm not sure he remembers either. ;-)
