New Routing By Night

Classic E1 5c*- Twin Cracks- Round Crag

We had a rather interesting evening at Round Crag- setting off at sevenish.
Kitten- VS 5a* (getting Dark)

Out with Dave and his brother Nick, we had a reet good time on a couple of seldom-climbed classics.
A great time to embark on a new route onsight.....

I then fancied a ganda at an unclimbed wall on the same buttress, but due to the lack of light donned a headtorch.
Entering the Crux.

I luckily found some good gear, but the tiny dishes and hidden crimps up high pushed me off again and again.

A bit of a fall..

We'll be back in the light. I was pretty close in the end and reckon the final move will be 6b/c and pretty much super safe. A great testpiece and of a style unknown to the moors.
