KH - Climbing in Repton
(other half of trip with Becka + Ian)
Andrew spotted intersting hole in roof of repton, 15-18m off deck.
Bedding it is in caused there to be a ledge(ish) from it back to the
highest point of the boulder pile (well about 3m up at that point).
Andrew shinned whilst wookey belayed. First bit straight up wall
proved awkward with heroic move needed onto ledge. Ledge full of KH
mud of course and generally about 30-60cm wide and sloping away. Slow
progress with a lot of muttering round an awkward bulge then good wide
bit till nearly at passage. Narrow bit here with huge runout so 1 more
bolt needed. 7 bolts in total. Seconding was even scarier as all the
pro was just before each tricky bit! Wook had one major wobbly
part way along, but made it after a lot of grumbling.
Naice walking passage about 4m x 1.8m was our reward. We rigged
down-rope 1st then surveyed. Disto D2 was very troublesome - refusing
to measure except one time in 10. Tedious. Surveyed about 100m, until
becka arrived to point out it was hometime. Nice draught, passage
continues. Fine thing to come back to...
