A cats cradle...

North Face Route** 240m (Severe 4a)

I raved about this route since climbing it with Gerry and Murray earlier this summer. Craig was as always Captain Keen regardless of the weather and we figured that we could both manage a Severe in the wet. I lead the pitches I didn’t lead last time and can honestly say there is not one bad pitch on the route. It was cold, wet and damp till the penultimate pitch on dry grippy rock. Great climbing and good to have Craig back on the rock again after a summer of DofE work.
