Tunnocks, Stone Monkey

Sat 07 Aug 2010



Surprised to be ascending ramps of loose boulders almost to the surface to get to the ongoing lead. Dropped miserable pitch to active stream ending in boulders. At least the Stone Monkey had decency to die properly. Surveyed out but Chris S had difficulty with DistoX so last legs dodgy. Optical equipment problems were compounded by a lens from my glasses springing down between boulders leading to a one eyed ascent through numerous rising inlets during exit - large amounts of water so close to surface.
