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.

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.

Looks fun Kieran!

Don- Kev is currently trapped in the states... He's working on it, but not expecting an expedient resolution.

We should hook up soon tho! ;)

Has anyone done Mt Sloan? A buddy of mine has expressed interest in heading up there..

The classic route up the ne (?) ridge ,we did a few years back.. Was
a nice time.. I recall that the rope just slowed us down .. We came down the s face which made it out to be a nice day trip
