Samba Pa Ti, Dow Crag

8th September 2007

Had a bit of an Epic on this while seconding it a couple of years ago, (Learnt how to Jug for the first time, while it was pissing it down, after I fell off) so it was another Rematch! The route is well protected and you can find half rests between moves, its quickly all over once you reach a great rest and the angle kicks back.

When i did it apart from the pull of the slab, which wasn't to bad, it felt HVS! I wouldn't go encouraging any HVS climber up there, but if your a Gym Rat, who works as Rope Access, you would have no problem. What a route! Go do it now! Was climbing with Shaun for the first time, so i was glad it all went well. Well apart from me struggling on a VS on the same day!
