Time and Tide
Did a new route yesterday at Brimham, Dave Sutcliffe showed me this last weekend and I was immediately impressed and could not believe it had not been climbed. Then when I had a feel I realised why, progress from the perfect crimps to the top is guarded by a micro sloper. Its a fair pop to the top above what could be a sketchy landing if you did not use pads. The day was a bit epic, sleet showers kept on soaking the top and stopping play. Once the weather seemed to clear I had chance to get it on a oner on toppy, my plan was to go for a pre solo walk round Brimham to get my head sorted but a quick look at the incoming weather forced me into the desesion of either get the top covered with a pad or just get it done. As the sleet started to pitter patter on the pads and the top sloper I chalked up, cleaned my shoes and bashed out the solo. Its a quality addition to Brimham and if you want to look at it as a boulder problem font 7c might well describe its difficulty.
Ah yea and it climbs the wall to the right of Tender Homecoming, the old classic E8 7a.
I ve called it Time and Tide and given it E7 7a.
Sutty filmed it so a cool video will follow shortly.
