|Pete cruising Thin Red Line|
|Pete chilling at a rest on Forked Lightening|
With Pete wanting a break, I decided to have a go on Orange Crush E6 6b**. I had been up to the peg a couple of times before and reversed down, so the flash was still on. As I launched up the very steep wall, passing the pegs and entered the crux, I was suddenly air born. After four falls from the same hold that I could just not get properly, I finally got my heel in the right spot to make the move easier. This meant I was suddenly on the hold and through the crux. A few steep, exposed moves on good holds up the arete and I was done. Awesome wild climbing, and another classic Heptonstall route that didn't disappoint.
Pete was now rested and set about cruising Forked Lightening Crack E3 5c***. He wrapped his day up with a swift ascent of Brown Sugar E2 5c**. A pretty good haul for the man that said he was not sure how it would go. It's good to be out with Pete again and hopefully there will be more days like this to come.
