Being a Spurs fan and knowing I am a Chelsea fan was perhaps a motivating force behind his text, just how he knew the score escapes me but it obviously cheered him up.
As for progress well it sounds promising;
2 routes on the beach are now in progress, hard, steep starts in the high 7's. Another two routes up the slab to their right, a 6b and a 5+.
"We have a line straight up the middle of Condominium face. First pitch no harder than 6b, second pitch 7b/c mayber harder. Steep with lots of snappy holds!! The wall is probably 160m! Higher than forst thought. The bottom of all the main wall is dirty and loose! Almost had an incident yesterday, jumar rope wore through to core!"
I will publish more pictures tomorrow when Ed comes back from the island but it is good to see progress being made at last despite the obvious drawbacks.
We have had enquiries about people coming out to join the guys. We will welcome anyone who wishes to be a part of this project.
More to follow.....
