Hi Dave hope things are good .. no gear in the Cad above traversing right so yes soloing up to the peg ... having gear up by the bolt is not doing the route .. took along time to commit and was eyeballing the peg but couldnt clip ... just managed to get a quickdraw on and grab it ! I subsequently found out that other ascents had the peg tied off / extended ..oh well .
Sorry Mick. I hadn't seen your post.
That's a mighty fine effort
Really good to get a bit more info about other people's efforts on these things. I'd hi-jacked a Japanese climber for the trip to Wales, and he was pretty perturbed about the prospects.
What constitutes a successful ascent?
I'd certainly say that yours does, but maybe not as unblemished as you'd like. A great effort.
There are a lot of lines that get blurred with some of the more high profile ascents, that folk don't want to ask questions about.
I think that some prior knowledge fits with the whole ethic - i.e. a bit of info on what you might expect, so good to raise that question in the context of this thread
