Dante's Inferno (18), Serpent.

I bolted a new extension to the Serpent classic Minotaur (17). The route already had an extension, heading out right from the Minotaur anchor, but was rarely ever climbed as it's fairly runout with only 2 bolts in 16 metres. This new extension is a bit more sane, with 4 bolts protecting the face. Link it with Minotaur, but make sure you have a 70m rope if you plan to lower to the ground.

Extension above Minotaur, on crimpy slab. Continue straight above anchor of M passing two rings, before a tricky move out right. Two more rings straight above to chain.

Here are some photos I took of Susy Goldner doing the 4th ascent yesterday.

  1. That's about as different from the style of the first pitch as you could get.
