Tribute Wall accident 11/09/2018 10-Oct-2018 At 3:45:25 AM Stugang

Yeh I read that just before our trip what an epic! Anyway if he can retreat off a 6c I don’t feel so bad about retreating off a 6b.

The route we were on is the 6b he tagged along for with the other party before his epic on another climb. Admittedly we only got four pitches up but some of the pitches were graded 6b and I really cannot believe they were harder than 5c - so there is some grade distortion happening on that route. That being said I think it is good being generously graded to dissuade less experienced folk from attempting it as regardless of technical difficulty it can get serious pretty quickly in the tropics.

The 6c he was on looks unbelievable and I really really want to do it - my understanding is that it is sensibly bolted and though at times spaced there are bolts at any hard bits. Unfortunately it is closed till March ish with monsoon starting now. I wouldn’t do it with the folk I was with on my trip - so I repeat anyone passing through Singapore after March next year let me know it is fkin awesome.
