From one extreme to another. Last trip it was raining, today it was roasting. It felt like the hottest day of the year and conditions on the wall were grim. I sorted out all of the gear placements and finalized my sequence but the individual moves felt as difficult as they ever had. Deciding to call off my attempt was a difficult decision, but when your life is on the line, you need to be 100% sure that what you are doing is the right thing.

Unfortunatley the forecast for tomorrow is much the same and so things are not looking great. I don’t know, English people just love to moan. Moan when its wet, moan when its hot, moan, moan, moan...

I think drastic measures may need to be used, unfortunately that means getting up really, really early. It’s a good job the route will be worth it.

I think, just maybe, i've abbed down what you're trying and it scared the bejesus out of me just doing that!

Big respect, and i wish you well with your attempts.
