Macca, been meaning to show you these... Taken up the top of the gully between the Coke Ovens and Exploding galaxies. I thought of you as soon as I saw it.

Looks like Superman and Clark Kent to me but it's been a while since I last looked at
these...

I don't think it is Richard, scale is a bit deceptive. The corner is probably only about 60m high. It was WAY up the gully. My understanding is that CC and Superman are further down the river, and much higher.

Gigantor? Colossus? Titan? Having never looked at this wall close up I'm merely hypothesizing! Do you need pins on these routes or are they ok as clean aid (for mere mortals)?

Free attempts on Gigantor or Titan would probably be best . . .

Both Titan & Gigantor have already been freed, but I'd love to see Team Zac & Macca have a crack at the top of Collosus!

I too would love to have a 'crack' at the top of Collossus; unfortunately, there is only soft rounded bumps
and 40 year old bolts and a plunging void after you commit through the final roof.
Hopefully the traverse will 'go' without too much problem . . .

I'm keen to try landslide chimney; not if it's a deckathlon though

I remember watching Adam Darragh and Steve Monks in Landslide Chimney as I aided
Titan a day or so before Simey + Steve freed it - They got the FFA so I guess I got the LAA
- Last Aid Ascent! Or maybe I was on Gigantor with Gil while Mark Savage soloed Colosus
- ohh the memory's fading but I think that may have been it - it was probably the last time
there were five people on the dog at the same time too!

Anyway at one point I saw Ad do the best impersonation of a turtle that I've ever seen as
Steve lost control of a rather large block of the the sandy beach we all love as Dogface!
