This weekend saw another attempt at my personal nemesis, the climb 'Crack and Corner' at the Roaches. Its an odd route, as by far the hardest move is getting off the ground, so a combination of only being a few feet up and also being able to place a cam above your head from the ground, to effectively have a top rope for the first bit, makes it quite safe to fall off.

This is fortunate, since I fell off on all 15 attempts, leaving behind a reasonable amount of skin and incurring quite a few amusing bruises. A brutal layback seemed to work better than jamming. I may even have been getting close to working out how to do it, but by that time my arms were no longer working!

Christine of course managed it no bother...Next year I'll beat it.
