A leisurely start followed by an afternoon of toil. A major packathon had neatly sorted food, water and beer for 4 nights (after a quick excursion to the store to refresh beer supplies after Bill accidentally broke into the wall stash). About 70kg of supplies and soft furnishings to add to the 20kg of ropes and kit already on the wall.
No smoke in The Valley today and El Cap is looking glorious – and we’ve still got at least the whole of the South East face to ourselves
Final check list… Correct route? Yup! Beers enough for one a night each and one for the top? Yup! Okay, we’re off…
End result, we’re dining and drinking beer on Matzalan ledge having fixed the squeeze / roof pitch (good effort Bill!)
