it was indeed an impressive hex placement  ;D 


first an easy starter on "common arete (M)"
i did my first lead climb, although it was really more of a scramble



alan at the bottom



scrambling over the top onto the next route



"high noon (HS 4c) " alan leading, nowhere to place protection!



a nice gulley here  "Struggle Gulley (S 4a)", again nowhere convenient to place proptection, i let alan lead  ;D



then i followed when safely on a belay



coming or going?



then onto "escalator", Big E leads



Neil belaying (his first time out on rock)






abseiling back down, the normal way



the not so normal way






and just as we were leaving allyc turned up
