I sort of remember. Which is why I might have named it Cider crack.

:-)

I think I led that pitch waaaaaaaaaay baaaaaaaaaaaaack when. And called it Cider Crack c'os I love cider more than beer. More than whisky too actually.

I realize that might be heresy but there is nothing so lovely as a big cold cider on a hot summer night.

Guess what I'm drinkin' rite now?

Yep.

Mike those are great pix. Sorry you guys haddan epic. ANd call Relic next time. :-D

Did the badge on the weekend. The sun didn't touch us until 4pm so it was super sweet. It all went smoothly, had loads of fun, and found the climbing straight forward and enjoyable until the dirty end....

First A3 of the route. This is an inverted cam hook move. Not a very hard pitch, but one of the better ones on the route.

Grant, who has only done a pitch on Wrist Twister before, crushing this pitch full of small fixed heads and requiring hammering. He did super well.

Nice

Me at the bags at the end of the 3rd, Chris out in space.

Chris tasting some thin A3. Not much was solid on this pitch.

Chris stoked to have cruised a stiff pitch.

Yay, I made it!

Grant enjoying the exposure.

Our camp above the roof...got there about 4.30pm in the afternoon and chilled there instead of doing anything climbing related.

Second last pitch. I took a silly fall on the one, and had really serious rope drag after the roofy bit. I run super long slings on things, but I think Revolvers would be key here.

Last pitch. Really crappy.
