I climbed a new route which I had bolted a week ago which starts up Minotaur but veers left and up.
Sent it 2nd go, just managed to hang on till the top. The crux is a massive deadpoint from two small side pulls to a big sloper. Awesome. Its called Cobra Necktie, and is grade 24.
First Ascent of Cobra Necktie (24).
Start of the crux, tiny crimps.
Crux move, massive deadpoint to a jug. Should this climb be called frog jump?
First Ascent, done!!
It was Ronsley's first time out to Serpent, and he had a shot on Minotaur (17). Terry snapped these next shots while Ronsley was sending it.
