Milk bottle

The photo quality isn't that great, but 4 stars for standing up there!

Re: Milk bottle

What's the difficulty rating for climbing this? 5.what? Or is it a bouldering problem? V.what?



Also, hopefully that perlon cord is not a permanent anchor feature. Such things are always eyesores to me when so obvious (like sling ladders on summit blocks). I see the cord is not visible in other shots.

Re: Milk bottle

No, the cord used as "pro'" was looped around (it took us like an hour to do it!), and removed afterwards- of course it took like 30 seconds to get up (not long after we got to the top, some guy doing a traverse came, looked at it for a moment, and went right up- bastard)! Getting up there is mostly friction, with a LOT of exposure, and goes at about 5.4
