204 - Pushing in sandpit

Mon 11 Aug 2008

Having seen how promising 03-32C looked the previous day (and with Julian doing a carry down the hill for me - thanks!) we returned to Sand pit with a power drill and 62m of rope. A series of sloping pitches lead to a more vertical section of about 25m. beyond this, the pitches continued with a seconds rattle - this looks like and excellent lead! Unfortunately we had run out of rope so we headed back out, meeting up with Aaron and Serena on the way who offered to carry out the drill and rope - excellent!

This lead is definitely worth another look. A better rig is probably needed as it looks like it might take water in the wet, but the existing bolts should at least provide a good start!
