Louis Armstrong 5th Ascent


Malc crushed Louis Armstrong in less than perfect conditions today (sea mist!!!) for its 5th ascent (Danny, Ty, Mickey, Nacho, Malc). Tommy C also cracked Masterplan on Mayfair today, effort mate. I have been in yorkshire for 2 days sweating my tits off at Kilnsey, so hot!!! First day had some good go's at Grooved Arete, felt a bit better on it than last year, despite it being earlier in the season. Today i floundered a bit on it then had one bolt to bolt on Full Tilt. I have always always been inspired by this route as it climbs right up the middle of the North Buttress. Unfortunately its often wet but today it was dry, chalked and ticked and Tom Newmans clips were in so i couldn't resist a bash. The route boils down to 3 hard moves and they're all BIG moves! It took a few goes to get the hard moves but i just about did them. Was quite pleased as it was only a quick burn and it is a hard 8b. Was interesting to compare it to my Diamond project which is probably fairly similar gradewise. The Diamond thing has easier moves but i think much more fitness is required.
Gangle puffing and panting and almost doing Full Tilt:
