Quick Wilton 4 Hit

I managed to grab an hour in Wilton 4 yesterday afternoon after work.  I started off flashing Cold Emotions E4 5c*.  This was pretty straight forward to a wiggy last couple of mores.  The landing was ok with a couple of pads.

Lady Ice E5 6b* was next.  If I had been with someone else, I'd like 5o have tried to on sight it.   However, I'd have blown the start. After one quick go on a rope, I had it sorted, so decided to solo it.  It was definitely exciting, but a good hands off rest halfway helped break it up.  An excellent route.

Just the harder E5's left to tick off in there now, hopefully get them done this year.

Catching Up

I have been pretty busy since last blogging, so thought I'd do a quick update.  There has been a run of NGB'S lately, with an SPA assessment, CWA Training and CWA assessment.  Adding to that the usual route setting, a family holiday, there's not been too much time for anything else.

That said I did manage to get a climb in one day.  I was nice to test the finger out properly, as it has been taking a while to recover.  I climbed Fool's Gold E5 6b at Mytholm Steeps Quarry. For the most part this was straight forward.  But the crux at the top was super sequence specific.  Nice and safe though.

I then moved on to the edge and had a go at Not For Weasel's 7b+.  I'd tried this a few times on and off in the past, but could not suss the start.  However, this time armed with some video beta, I was reasonably straight forwards once you knew how.

Hopefully was the school holidays are over, I might get a bit more climbing in.
