Tarn Hole & High Crag

Franco and I walked up to High Crag to check our progress on Australia Crack... It's possible but it'll be mighty hard! I had a project in mind up at Tarn Hole, something highball i'd previously not committed too. The line breaks left through steepness from a junction with A Reach Too Far (E4 6b ***) and probably adds a notch or two to both of those grades with a guess of E5 6c.

E5 6c * - Excellent steep moves

Slopey boldness

The landing isn't great, but we did have a couple of pads. Some great heel-based moves on slopers, crimps and pockets. Not too high but not bouldering really either - or not enjoyable bouldering in any case! The wind was a bit harassing like.

A Reach Too Far - E4 6b ***

Brilliant moves
We finished the day with some bouldering and it's all in the video below... enjoy.
