Good blustery day for a walk in the woods. Just as we joined the main track from Devcich, after having got stung a few times from disturbing a wasps nest, one of the little blighters crawled into my shorts pocket. Not fancying being pricked on my stinger, I did the sensible thing and de-shorted mid-track. I think it was this action that prompted Andrew 'Braveheart' Tencentcoin to tear his shorts off right on the crux of the climb in order to replace them with a kilt and complete the climb, flying-free in the wind.

The chain section was awesome and worthy of it's reputation. I had great faith in hauling up on the chain in a reverse abseil until I saw a particularly large anchor boulder rocking and rolling as I pulled - gulp! The last 200m (up or across - all the same) is the memorable part of this trip.
