Its the best option. You don’t need to do it for all the panels. Make use of the cave and the everest wall as well. Once people have done all the stations then they can climb on the remaining panels. Is there anything wrong with doing it this Tuesday? Sooner is definitely better than later.
In terms of leading, there are people who join who can…[Read more]

After our previous outing myself and Cadden (mostly myself) deemed it wise to actually warm up before tearing our tendons on the usual boulder circuit of failure.
