If only there was an unrepeated, hard, holdless slab somewhere that Crouch could go and do  :-\

In fact, there are two.  :o Would you believe it...

Yeah, but they can't both be in esoteric quarries, surely?

I guess if you add the big G's slab at Stanworth, that could be a Crouch Quadumvirate Mission, or something  :shrug:

 :agree: DOF on first picture is very good

(hope its effective use of aperture/focal length and not PS  :spank:)

I don't do it myself... but I would argue if you can't tell, it doesn't matter.

Aye, I guess that's a fair point, time to scrutinise the original  :P

Actually I like it for the angle and the sheerness (particularly in the full-size) rather than the DOF, I'd like it pretty much the same without the latter.

Healey, Davidson, some grumpy old git, Chadwick, Adams (last two might have been in reverse order).

Apologies for the earlier 'joke', it was really only intended for consumption on merseyside.

Really nice shots stu. I've firm designs on nailing this too at some point in time. Alas my curry budget fund probably isn't great enough.

Thanks for the praise guys, shots are straight from camera (hence poor exposure on a couple shots). Too lazy to photoshop at the mo, Alas, didn't take RAWs so you'll have to trust me on this :) taken on a 400d with an 85mm lens. Really want to start getting back to the photography, need some full frame action but am too poor. Let me know when you're gonna send and I'll hit you up with some coverage Monolith.

Really nice sequence. I like the first especially for its composition, DOF etc but also, as I think Fiend said, because it gives such a good sense of the nature of the climbing. Nice one alround.

Holy! Only just noticed this. Much wad to you, Rich. If you'd told me you'd done this the other day then I would have congratulated you then.

No need to do it again lad, you followed the exact line that Ewan showed me and you've got nothing to worry about!

I feel I should reiterate that my comment about the slot was a complete joke. Mick and Pete used it; I didn't, but only because it never occured to me that I might be able to reach it. That's the great thing about Monoblock, its a proper pure line that you climb however you can. Very fine effort Richie.

Cheers Will ^^

@ Cofe - They are the 5X's I keep plugging to anyone who enquires! I really rate them as a great all rounder, at home in the cave pressing and heel hooking as well as on the vertical edging stuff at Pex (I had to order them online through bananafingers as they weren't available in v12).

Don't worry Andy, I said that kind of thing to Rich pretty much as soon as he'd done it (or rather as soon as he'd thought he'd done it).  And never ever apologise for pointing out where people have gone wrong at Pex.

I think it's time to get back on NW overhang  :whistle:

@ G and Probes, I'm planning on avoiding any more vertical shenanigans for as long as possible and want to get back to the cave asap (which strangely proved to be excellent training for pex  :-\)
