With Clark Alston.

I was finding things even more worrying than usual having dropped one of my shoes in to the sea on pitch 3. Through the gathering darkness I looked back at Clark [Alston] trying not to weight the pathetic belay. We were both thinking the same thing: if I couldn't get past this next section of 5c mud and talc we were in really big trouble... [1]
