Another good foray. Climb the right-hand side of the lower face, then tackle the steepening above to the top.
Foot and Mouth


I belayed a lead up Foot and Mouth for the refuge belay on Rosary thankfully as there was plenty of lose rock on Foot and Mouth that come down and plenty gribs coming off in my hand on the second. Be careful. Otherwise seemed like a good, but demanding for the grade, climb

I've seen the topo now. I spotted the line for Foot and Mouth when I went down to climb Rosary. The CC description of Rosary is not very clear when confronted with the rock, but I took it be further left that the line in Rockfax. I then climbed Foot and Mouth more direct than the Rockfax line. I don't suppose it matters much. Hope you enjoy it. I don't remember it being terribly loose, but I was being very careful with the rock.

I did this route in September, it would be a very serious lead, not wise to fall off and sooner rather than later the top of it will fall down on its own. I lead well above vs but no way I would have liked to lead this. BE WARNED!

A great route until the top section (after the hand traverse), the last 4m is steep, loose and unprotected. My second pulled off a breeze block sized chunk. Better to traverse left a little further and exit via Rosary.

Great until the chossy traverse with a chossy top-out, big swing with a painful climax if you fell off the traverse. Chickened out and escaped rightwards (easy but no gear). The stake is a little wobbly iron peg in the big boulder, we backed it up with a hex in the same rock.
