Kungexesha:

Post by SNORT » Mon Sep 04, 2017 2:48 pm

[attachment=0]Kinguxesha.JPG Some three years ago I swung around on a rope trying to find a way through the headwall left of Timerity. Yesterday with Jimbo and Garreth we embarked on a "moderate" climbing day at YW and decided to stay on the shady side as it was pretty hot up there. We fashioned a mostly independent and moderate route between Another Fckn Time and Timerity and Jimbo took a hard winger off the crux of the final pitch. Grades are E or 12, 17, 20, 18, 18 and 25ish. We then all top-roped it with some of us having better success than me. (got to lose the tyre round my waist I think). Crux moves are off a right hand Gaston, thin crimps for the left and a dreadful right foot that kept slipping off when I tried it. A beer for anyone that works out the name first and then also why? The Onsight is up for grabs and the pro is excellent!

That's a bit cryptic and way off in any case

It's Time?

Reason: After 3 years you finally got through the headwall?

or, possibly more appropriate: it's time you loose the tyre around your waist ;)
One life, one body. Use them well.

Yebo (sic). It is indeed about time. What first attracted me to the west buttresses was exactly that headwall. It always seemed so improbable and now it goes at a mere 25ish. The fact that I think I can do it suggests that it may only be 24. And BTW although my waist might be a bit loose, it won't be a waste if I lose some of it. Spelling capice.?
