Above: start of Crux pitch
Today we picked an easy option to let me get into the swing of things. We climbed Cutless VI, 7 on the Douglas Boulder, which follows an obvious corner and chimney up the face. I led the majority of the 2 hard pitches in a oner, before Greg finishes off the end off the chimney. A batch of buried mixed ground to us onto the SW Ridge and to the top. The route was a little buried and verglassed which made gear hard work to get today, so the route was quite bold. However, we both thought VI, 6 was a fairer grade (depends on how you do in chimnies I guess).
