The boys are now 11 days old, and Nain took Logan so I could take off for the morning and forsake my familial duties - Bliss.
Once again the crack house was my destination (soon to be fully public) and I went with Pantontino for an ego sesh; basically show and tell and some piccies. Did the last line I was keen to sire. This was Receding Hairline V4/5; a sitter on the right wall of Barred to the bone. It starts off an undercut and a flatty on the right wall and follows the general vicinity of the hairline crack (pretty obvious in the piccy). Apart from ruling out the jug high and deep inside barred, and a big foot block, It felt very non eliminate and Quite powerfull!
Very happy, I packed up the kit I'd stashed there and moved on to a new shed...
I thought I'd get this in early this month as I have a spare twenty minutes and things are pretty busy since the twins arrived. I'm very happy and tired, but the adventures are going to be mainly parental. So its going to be quality not quantity for a bit, and this is pure Quality!
The sunny seaside town of Benllech on Ynys Mon is home to a nice beach, some sport routes and this lovely cave.... South of hidden wall, this 40ft deep cave has a nicely flared horizontal chimney running through its entire roof at head height. The rear of the cave is fairly cramped and non descript, but a couple of yards towards the light a chockstone marks a sensible starting point. From here, jamming, back-and-footing, and general squirming will get you to the light and here...
For the highball topout. There is a couple of downsides to this amazing discovery (and why I didn't snap it up when I found it)
-Tidal; needs a fairly low tide.
-Holds damp; will require a good coastal breeze, and as the crack goes all the way, some dry days. a Towel might help too.
-Landing is bouldery; probably solved by 2 mats stacked on a leash and a spotter to drag it.
