Check out today's good question in the 'climbing clinic' from Ruth.

24th Oct 2007

Also, had another play on 'End of the affair' and can do it on top rope but can't work out a sequence that makes it feel a dead cert. It's that sort of climbing where it will never feel secure, my foot keeps popping off the top move which would be utterly horrible on lead.

I have been back on Slab and Crack E8 at Curbar, which I really like. It's got some fantastic climbing on it. A very scary bottom slab and a hard crack above with gear. I am quite psyched to put some time into this route, I'm not sure if I will ever bring myself to lead it as the first part has no gear and would be utterly terrifying. Are bouncy castles ethical??
