The Extended Handline

A pretty impressive amount of effort must have gone into this handline. I'd heard all sorts about the access being dodgy but in reality, apart from a few careful steps down the initial gully, it's absolutely fine. Shorter quickdraws make life easier. There are now knotted ropes at the abs and metal rungs at the final one.

 

I hadn't quite thought-out that exiting this way might be quite physical for Nat however thankfully we were done just in time to only get one wet foot on the walk out along the beach.

 

Great effort by the bolters.
