We had a great weekend climbing at Hell’s Gate and Lukenya! On Saturday, we had good fun exploring Spring’s Wall at Hell’s Gate. The first was a rope-stretcher: clean, varied climbing up solid rock in a beautiful wide corner crack leads to an exit that’s better than it first appears. The second was a great new route adventure up some more wide cracks and tricky slabs to complete ‘Reform’ (S 50m J. Tracy). Some other FAs await in this area!

On Sunday a few parties had great fun repeating some steep classics up the Main Wall at Lukenya.


Pondering the line.
