204 - Chocolate Salty Balls pushing

Mon 28 Jul 2008

Returned to leads 01-38B and 01-37B in Chocolate salty balls to bolt the traverse and descend the pitch. Had soo much fun hand-bolting while perched precariously over the small pitch - once across, lead 01-37B turned out to be a short crawl to a small chamber, from which a second much larger pitch could be reached through a slot in the wall. Decided to leave descending it until the next day, as the pitch head was awkward, and we didn't have a drill.

Went back to lead 01-38B, and Kathryn descended it to the bottom while I finished bolting the traverse. The pitch was blind, ending in rocks and boulders only about 10m down.
