Balkon - to Pitstop (off Mongol Rally)

Thu 02 Aug 2018

T/U: 10 hours

Down to Pitstop + started with the RH lead (pitstop 2) lead at the start. Over the big boulder quickly led to a big pitch which we assumed was Mongol Rally though George disagreed so it would be worth trying to find out where it went. Next went left at the water inlet then left at the T-junction + surveyed some easy, long legs (pitstop 3) which ended in a drafting pitch which is a good lead.

Third we went to the N end of Pitstop (pitstop_4) & it turned out you didn't need to rig it as a pitch, you could crawl down on the right. This led to a drippy chamber with avens. The only lead was the pitch on the left, drafting but smalland the sound of water. Finally I put in 3 bolts for the traverse over the far side of Pitstop whilst Nadia set off out.
