Nice one Kershmore, max kudos.  :great:

Glad to see someone from our neck of the woods doing some proper climbing, Karl Lunt would be proud.

Nice one Nige. Glad you got it done - was a lovely cool breeze coming down in the eve, so hope you enjoyed it! Pete will be pleased you didn't get to mash his cam either...  ;)

Have a good week this week as weather looks good and I'm sure the crushage will continue.

Hardly worth mentioning really but Steve (the Claw) repeated Ru's 'Seraphim' yesterday after serveral .... er .... minutes of effort. He warmed down on a damp and dripping Mecca  but that's 'really' not worth mentioning unless he was wearing a blindfold and rollerskates  8)

Yes the peg belay is still there, I extended it to the edge with a long sling to reduce drag. In that photo it is clipped (blue rope) its just hard to tell.

Chillax, who's is the pic? Brian's? I remember him being there.

T'was on my mate Neal's blog http://nmcquaid.blogspot.com/. I believe he'd been out tradding that day with a Brian (aka Smacks?) who I don't know.

He's tried it before he said, but I think maybe only a couple of tries.

Hi Ru,

My previous post may have been misinterpreted, dismissing Seraphim as  'easy'. Ha! nothing could be further from the truth, Steve said that he had tried to onsight it last year and failed (which considering how well he was climbing and how the style of climbing is just up his street, says something alone). He even had the good grace to puff and pant a bit on the ascent, something that there was no evidence of on his subsequent ascent of a dripping Mecca :bow:

Just good to see it getting some attention.

I have no doubt that Steve crushed it with relative ease. And in the grand scheme of things it is easy - what is it, 5 grades below his current best? No, don't worry about how your post sounded, I'm just glad that he didn't tear the holds off as he climbed it.

I dunno, I've never found anything that beats a good old fashioned tricam

Yes, but tricams are a pain in the arse to get out, I always curse my mate when I see him putting one in on lead.

Waddage! Doesn't seem to get much attention.

I must admit at first I read it as The Big Bang. I got stupidly excited. Still, a stupendously impressive tick!
