Big K

We arrived at Big K, and it was lashing down. My psyche was low and my pocket on Dr crimp was wet. I decided not to climb, but rest. Andy F and Cookie were tag teaming Grooved Arete, so i just watched. Then Arran turned up and as his proj (Vanilla Path) was wet he decided to get on Private Practice, the 8a+ next to Grooved Arete. After he worked out the beta i got psyched, and was redpointing in no time. Very soft for 8a+, and very flashable with beta. Ted?

Top was wet though which is the same as Little Earnie. So knowing this might have prevented my psyche from getting to a level to do the route. Couple of goes i pulled into crux but not out of it. Cest la vie.

Will prob try and head back tomorrow or Wednesday to redpoint. Before i then take a well earned surfing break to Cornwall and Devon.
