I was climbing ‘All the young Fascists (24)’ at Stathams Quarry today and I broke a crucial hold off just below the 4th bolt :/
This seriously hinders the crux move and will add to the grading if someone can ascend it. Fortunately this large piece of rock missed my belayer, this is a wake up call for the need to use helmets with any climbing, I for one will be in the future.
Hi mario Yes Mate it was the Jug under the 4th bolt , the climb is way harder now as this was a crucial hand and footer
to the right is a rather smooth slopper someone with superior ability may work out a way through this crux , would like to know their thoughts on the grade now ?
The climb has been done since using the crimp to the right (which is actually a shorter move than to the jug) and the newly formed sloper. The missing jug footer makes it more challenging maybe worthy of an extra grade but that could also be splitting hairs. Interesting and committing moves.
