5.10+ The Great Line SE Face

First 2 pitches only. Very late start due to another 2 groups ahead. Too tired to continue, and limited time.

5.10d Inner Limits

Despite its wide nature, this crack/ chimney was very fun, with many climbing tricks needed.

If it hadn't been our last morning and I wasn't exhausted this may have happened. Nearly there on my second attempt. Jamming gloves rule.

5.10+ The Great Line SE Face

Third time lucky. First go was after 9 days rain and it was very wet. We got to top of pitch 12 before bailing at 9 pm after starting late due to guys in front, at 7 am. Second go retreated pitch 6 due to bad weather. Third go went smoothly, summit in 12 1/2 hours at 6 pm and back to camp before the sun set. Amazing route, lives up to the hype
