I was back at Eridge on the weekend. Making good progress on this problem (Nipple Rash f6b) — short but very satisfying. I’ve got the starting moves dialled just need to figure out the big reach for the top.
⚔ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Steamroller 6a tech ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happy to come back and get this after slithering off the top out on my last time here, eridge tower is probably one of the coolest formations on sandstone and I'm now very close to ticking all the routes on it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #climbing#southernsandstone#eridge#toprope#6a
Two new ones from Eridge yesterday. First vid is a lower start to the leaf adding a hard move to the start making it more like 6C+/7A (harder for the short) called fallen leaf and the second video is an area I cleared up to the left of velcro aret and is 6A ish and called buried blade. There is also a rh version using an undercut around the corner at about the same grade. . . . #climbing#bouldering#sandstone#southernsandstone#chimeraclimbing#climbing_is_my_passion #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #climbing_videos_of_instagram #afterthesend#summer#fun
The moment in which everything started to go wrong on this climb 😳😬 lovely easy climb until the very top, then you encounter THE SLOPEY REACHY TOP OUT FROM HELL 😭 the tears started flowing and then I had an asthma attack. Safe to say it wasn't my finest moment and I don't think I'll be redoing the climb anytime soon. But I tried my best.
