|Pete on Mattahorn Arete|
Today I met up with Pete at Almscliff with the veiw off doing a little bit of climbing to see how the finger was. There is still some swelling, but as I can now straighten it, I was hopeful. We cruised a range of easy problems, but the sun was warming things up a bit. I only had till 2pm, so we moved into the shade where Pete led the link up of Western Front E3 5c*** with No Mans Land E2 5b* to give a soft E4. Pete dropped the ropes and I then Flashed the route, pleasantly surprised that the finger was holding up. Unfortunately, I had to bail, but Pete went to do a few laps on Morrell's Wall.
