Our last day in the quarry before my granddads 80th birthday and we head off to the Aran Islands and we’ve had our fill of trying the hard lines. We’ve 4 hours to climb before having to leave for the festivities and I realise that Caroline has never climbed the classic E2 cracks. Can we do all 5 before leaving? Damn straight!
Tower Ridge Direct
All belays must be set up and dismantled
All 5 routes must be seconded and cleaned
Clock starts on entering the quarry
Clock stops on leaving
Blazing Saddles, E2
Our time 2:34 (But we stopped for lunch and did one or two other side lines as solos)
I reckon some local out there could probably tidy them off in under an hour but it would be interesting to see…
Give em a go! They’re a great few lines!
Imagine the pitch if they were all stacked one ontop of each other!
