it's probably on the easy side of V4. If it was jugs after the crux then i'd say hard V3, but you have to commit to some dicey slab moves quite a way off the ground. anyway, it's harder than anything i've done before, and i did it in a single session without having climbed for 3 weeks beforehand so i'm stoked anyway.

Good work Gordo, committing to those crap smears above the rooflet is the hardest part for sure!

Im stoked that I was able to push myself in trad and lead the Janicepts today(not claiming an accent, only an attempt). It was my hardest trad climb I have ever attempted by far.

Also stoked that I took my first lead fall on my own trad gear when a solid feeling fist jam popped in the first awkward part of the Janicepts. Very much stoked that my gear placement was at least adequate!

Then not so stoked as after about two thirds height I got too scared and pretty much aided my way up(not pulling on the gear, just massive rests at each piece and taking my sweet time, whilst resting on the gear to place more gear). This was my first time weighting gear that wasnt an anchor.

Good Work! That's a big step, and the Janicepts is a beast. With my awesome record of shoulder injuries I've never been fit enough for it, but I constantly keep working back up to it.

Well done, olbert!

You'll get it next time. You will find you have demystified the climb by getting up it, even with hanging on gear at the top. As you noted , you didn't pull on gear. You just rested on it.

Go back in a couple of weeks. You will have the gear placements sussed and you know you can do the moves. Look for natural rests and double up on placements every now and then, when you can. That always makes me feel more confident, making moves above gear.

You should be stoked. Remember, once upon a time, it was the hardest route in the land.

Well done!

I can tell you he's got my hexes on his lender rack now.



Also, from about 5 posts back, I'm stoked to have read "like a dog with 6 c--ks". roflmaoing indeed.

I love some of those ocker sayings. the old 'fell out of the ugly tree and hit a few branches on the way down' is another fave.

That had me laughing my arse off too.

The funniest one I heard recently was that someone had "a face like a cat licking shit of a thistle".

I have seen that face an a few people.

How about "Face like a bucket full of smashed crabs"?

Or on a different note "Enough horsepower to pull Jesus off the cross"?

"Hungry enough to eat the arse out of a low flying duck".

The Poms have some good ones too: "Face like a robber's dog".

One of my neighbours has artificial grass and their cats try to bury their crap on it. It's pretty funny to watch them scratching at the plastic.

One of the things I like most about these phrases is that many of them are drier than a nun's nasty!

"I could eat the crutch out of a low flying duck..."

"I'm licking bricks here" (I'm thirsty)
