CameraDave Slater

Wall of Horrors (E3 6a), Almscliffe
About as pumpy as you get at this grade and the next. Top-tip: practise the 6b start before roping-up (pictured).

Piece of Mind (E6 6b),
The Roaches

My return to hardcore mind-games after 4 years. Top tip: don't shake!

Finesse (E4 5c,5c), St Loy
Wicked runout on granite slab. Top tip: easy if you're confident, an 80 footer if you're not.


Soft Touch (E3/5 6a), Baggy Point
Snappy rock, small holds, dodgy gear, no line of chalk to follow. Top tip: allow at least an hour and think of your second whinging about the cold and the tide coming in.
