The Moors Ground-up And New Projects

Onsight Soloing The Criminally Bolted Three Star classic 6a Arete (E5+)

The fall of Whitestonecliffe left a bit of a void in my life, but the void was quickly filled.

After a ground up ascent of Lemming slab (onsight really) we decided to swing a top rope down Black Night E5 6c (crucial peg now missing). One would imagine a 6c move, protected with a (now) lone poor cam would be at least E7, but a quick top rope sesh proved to show that the move is probably 6b or very low 6c, and could actually be climbed by a mortal like myself.

Then there's Roseberry Face, which is just plain scary.
