The Dangler, Lower Falcon

28th August.

An amazing route. I couldn't decide against The Niche or this one, but when someone jumped on the Niche it was faint! The Guidebook Suggested that the Dangler was a tougher procession than the Niche, so i was a little Nervous. I found the start of the 2nd Pitch the hardest and rather bold, even with the old bolt! after a couple of goes i gained a ledge and some pegs were i got my breath back. From there i made a couple more tricky moves to some good gear. The rest of the route seemed steep, but straight forward.

Bringing up Ian, he soon came tight on the rope. He hadn't been climbing all summer due to a foot injury! After a few more efforts i lowered him down and i abbed for the gear. A great route fitting to my "Stlye"
