Comments: As always thanks for your comments . We were a bit disappointed with this climb as we though the ridge continued to the far summits .. It was there so we went up it .. However as you you found there are not many of the routes in this area that will disappoint as far as an adventure !

Comments: Thanks for your comments on this climb. I have a feeling that this sandstone rock is still on the move... lets say after winter storms ?. I have noticed when the odd times I did a repeat ascent a year or two later on one of the slab climbs that there was some loose rock that I would have thought we would have had to removed on the FA. Its a thought ! . Anyway most of these climbs have had very few ascents I suspect yours was only the second ascent. Like all climbs more ascents should improve t... more >>

Comments: Fun shot.. In the 1950's in the wet UK it was common practice for us kids to climb in our WOOL socks in the rain.One could use just socks or pull a pair over your gym shoes.. however over shoes they tended to wear out faster!. . When guiding on Whitehorse Ledge slabs in NH in the 70' and 80's caught out in rain I used to get the clients to remove their shoes and climb in their socks. Wool socks and to some extent cotton work on wet rock remarkably well .. try it sometime

Comments: Hi Eric and Sam glad you enjoyed the experience.Do not forget there are at least 200 other climbs here on the Reef for your pleasure. One is not enough!Day of Atonement for example is as good if not better climb .. All The Best from the UK. PS I do consider myself a moderate leader.

Comments: If you do 1000' of Fun as discribed you will need two ropes to rap as anchors are at least 150' apart, you cannot walk off from the top of the climb.. There are some singe pitch routes in the area but can be quite difficult.
