What's the route with 3 bolts (I think) up the middle of Smoke wall at Gilham's? It's a bit contrived but not bad
climbing, maybe 22ish

A Rob Booth route - grade 23 from memory. Done about 5 years ago?

I had a complete epic on it so I was hoping it wasn't 21!

It felt a bit like that. I had no idea what to do on many of the routes!

Take note folks. After 'x' thousands climbs this may happen to us too.
NM is indicating he has started to get there already, ... and I thought the blurring of memory was an age /eyesight thing!
... though I strongly suspect my 'feebleness-limit' is a few thousand less than NMs record thus far!

I've found the best sandbags have always been by myself - tho not on my own routes! (yet)
