: News: New problems in The Scalp
: Dave Flanagan April 10, 2012, 06:36:37 PM
Over the weekend 3 new problems were climbed in the Scalp. High up on the West side of the valley is a large boulder with a prominient arete and a faded tricolour painted on the face. Often looked at but it had a sloping landing. A group sorted the landing with branches from the forest and climbed 3 problems. The pick of the bunch Eyrie 6c highballs up the arete. Skewer 6a climbing the face on the left and Manical laugh 6? traverses into the arete from the left and takes it on the left hand side. First ascents by John Howard, John Howard and James Gernon.

Silky smooth Shane on Dark Angle. It's that kind of problem though.

Class day out and great lines by John and James!

Eyrie felt a good few grades harder than Casbah, LDF and Alison Curtis - Beautiful line, the full package problem - get on it!  ;D

Hi, apologies for going off topic here but was out bouldering at the scalp for a short while with Dave, Clare and Trish (hope I remembered those names correctly!). 

Don't suppose any of you noticed if I left a bouldering guidebook behind?

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark,

Claire has it - maybe contact Gravity to get in touch?

Ha ha (raucous laughter).  In the space of a couple of minutes everything now makes perfect sense!

Thanks for the enlightenment.
