Not guilty, as you're aware. Anyway, 50m rope is more than adequate

Valli was cleaning it as I was cleaning Oxstair, see photo attached to Oxstair. Maybe she couldnt finish the job as her only rope wouldnt reach cos someone cut the bolt. Smart move?

HVS 4c I reckon. Time it was named correctly too, its TEELING

Sorry Folks! This route was already cleaned and climbed by Martin Daly and Paul Harrington Teeling 20metres HVS 4c Start: On the face, 1 metre left of the corner of De Cuellar. Climb delicately to gain a small rib. Gain the crack above and follow it through a bulge to the top. Martin Daly Paul Harrington 21/7/2007 Thanks

Some debate, 4c or 5a? The latter I think, but maybe that was just climbing in January!
