It was summer at this point so it was a midge hell hole, I covered myself in deet and started the process, It was always too hot but the moves got done, and after a midnight session with Jack I was ready to link it. At this point it was clear I needed it to be colder so I waited for the winter and sure enough then came the rain and a fucked elbow, then more rain. It takes 3 days to dry out as its so sheltered and has a run off on to the top holds. So in short I was getting nowhere.
January comes and we find a new house once this goes through there will be no more days off till its been done up. Loo king down the barrel of a few months with no outside climbing I set about a quick fix of training in the indy and at the mill. Confident or at least desperate that the good weather of Febuary would come again this year. And it did, so I got to climb it. Brilliant.
