Another Arapiles Accident

did checkmate a few weeks ago. definitely a little spicy. wouldnt want to come off going for the loose block. might clobber the belayer or someone else belaying on the bard ledge which could be amusing. theres some good alien placements (red i think) near the block and a great yellow alien higher up. great route. enjoy- definitely spicier than ML

I thought that you (collecting your packs) we bumped into at the base of CM and bard!

I thought that the pro of checkmate was fiddly, the rock a little poor but generally not too bad at all. If you hang around kinda mid crux there is a good wire at a stretch that makes the fiddly gear below mostly redundant. I tend to climb pretty gingerly though so maybe it just suited my style.

Hey no worries Rod. You provided the only bit of real excitement all weekend! The cam is not even wonky so you must have had it pretty vertical.

It was good to meet you and put a face to the name. I'll try to go up on the motorbike next time.
