After last weekend helped to further demystify the E-grades, I've been mentally cobbling together a little Extreme List of Psyche. Some of it's a little ambitious, but, hell, a boy can dream...
Cemetery Gates - E1 5b, Dinas Cromlech
A soft touch, and I've bottled getting on it before.
Ivy Sepulchre - E1 5b, Dinas Cromlech
A bridging corner, what's not to like?
Grond - E2 5b, Dinas Cromlech
Blatantly far too hard, but it's supposedly the ultimate test of jamming...
Plexus - E1 5b, Dinas Mot
Maybe the best rock in the world?
The Grooves - E1 5b, Cyrn Las
More corners, and a Hard Rock tick too.
Fear Of Infection - E4 6a, Cwm Glas Bach
The offwidthers offwidth.
Vember - E1 5b, Clogwyn Du'r Arddu
There's chimneying, and it would right the shameful wrong of never having climbed on cloggy.
Bella Lugosi Is Dead - E1 5b, Slate Quarries
Well protected slate? Yes please.
German Schoolgirl - E2 5c, Slate Quarries
Mmm, more bridging goodness.
California Arete - E1 4c, Slate Quarries
OK, so I'll never summon up the bottle to solo this, but it looks ace.
Gnat Attack - E1 5b, Bus Stop Quarry
Apparently the bold top section is easy. Eek.
The Groove - E1 5b, Llech Du
A proper big route on a proper big crag.
The Plum - E1 5b, Craig Bwlch Y Moch
What a line.
Barbarian - E1 5b, Craig Pant Ifan
Looks ace, if a bit surly.
The Exterminating Angel - E3 5c, Craig Cwm Trysgl
So, an E3 on a slab. But it's a slab made of amaze-o-rock. It has to be good, surely?
Atlantis/North West Passage - E1 5b, Castell Helen
P1 of Atlantis and P2 of North West Passage looks like an awesome combination.
Anarchist - E1 5b, Red Wall
Andy keeps trying to persuade me that Red Wall is a fun place. I'm unconvinced, but this looks rather good.
Mousetrap - E2 5b, Mousetrap Zawn
Incredible rock in an incredible place.
Emulator - E1 5b, Gogarth Main Cliff
Yet another ace looking corner.
Cripple Creek - E3 5b, Craig Dorys
Somehow compellingly terrifying.
Sinecure - E1 5b, Carreg-y-Barcud
A cool looking route at a great crag.
Beyond The Azimuth - E1 5b, Carreg-y-Barcud
Awkward crack climbing nonsense.
Lucky Strike - E1 5b, Range East
Been wanting to do this for ages.
Preposterous Tales - E2 5b, Range East
More compelling terror, but this time with added darkness.
Cool For Cats - E1 5b, Range East
Looks totally awesome.
The Strait Gate - E1 5b, Mother Carey's
Might need to get a bit fitter for this one...
The might keep me busy for a while. Next up, England.
