It's turning out to be a very popular route, there was a fair bit of chalk on the route when we did it!

I hear that is quite a brave run out. How did it go? Did he send it?

The current and previous trad pics are causing a hunger for trad adventure.

Was quite an experience to climb so close to that noise and power, was really cool! Even while we were together on the stance, we couldn't hear a thing, even if we shouted. Still stands out as one of my most memorable climbs...

Yea, great pic!
Was wondering tho, surely the moisture in the air and settlement on the rock makes really hard climbing conditions. Aside from that, it must be an amazing experience climbing right next to the falls like that!

Ha! Yes, the spray was a little problem... but the wind was kind to us, just every now and then we'd be in a downpour! The rock at Howick Falls has so much grip though, even in the wet.

The noise and exposure has a way of focusing the mind only on the climbing ahead, no thoughts about where the last bolt was or the feelings of imminent death that generally plague me. It's a really cool spot!
Haven't had enough rain this year, so no more dramatic photo's...

yes awesome pic, but it doesn't quite show how steep it is! Those two big boys either side of Andrew leans over towards the camera quite a lot.

Good stuff Hector :thumleft:

"leans towards the camera " is an understatement. It's about as steep as overhanging crack on Roulette!

Agree. Money shot, and an ace looking route.

Wow dude! A haircut, the same Edelrid shirt as Paul Brouard and a Pedley belay were all you needed for the send, well done Brian!
