Ascents

2 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Seb Grieve Solo (Worked) 13 Oct 1991 E8

Grieve suggested E8 for his solo ascent.

Soloed (Friend 6 did not exist.) with home-made knee-pads made from bathroom towels for added friction. Jeans are a good idea as well. Swinging across with a guppy and a pinch to the a-cheval position is the crux. Coming out of a-cheval to final layback is the heart-stopper and impossible to choreograph due to the 'knee-pad drift'. Felt very E8 at the time. Harder and bolder than Gaia and End of the Affair.
