POW, Right in the Rat, 5.11

2nd Pitch- 25m- 5.11/ Enter the steep crack right off the deck. The crux is at the end of this crack before you move into the small alcove above to pull a small roof. It is sort of a transition move left as the crack leans that can really mess you up if you don’t get the sequence correct. Once you squeezed into the small alcove/box above, pull the roof to a decent ledge with a fixed rappel.

I like it...

This second photo reveals just how foreshortened the first shot is. Must be all of 20ft between. The alcove looks like one of those "feel like I'm gonna peel backwards" jobs. Followed by that stretchy bridge move.

Jees, I'm gettin' to like this armchair climbing. 'bout time I got my ass off the chair and did some. Though I've just got back down from a scary pitch up on the roof, hanging off the side of a tall ladder, other leg over the ridge and cleaning moss out. Must be all of a 40deg pitch and unprotected. Hahaha
