A long way down!! III - Right Angle

A long way down!! III  - Right Angle
A very enjoyable corner crack climb which I did back in 1978. Right Angle is a famous climb at a modest HS E4 grade but that was near my upper limit and this was the best climb I had done at that time. What you see here is only the final third of the climb. The first two thirds comprise an interesting long traverse downwards to the foot of the crack.

Well, I had my rivet gun with me, John so I just riveted one arm to the cliff while I used my free hand to click the shutter. How else?

Not for me now either John - too many friends met with nasty and/or fatal accidents in the early 80s. I stuck thereafter to hill walking and scrambling for maximum exhilaration!
Thank you and Happy New Year!

Not a fiendishly difficult climb, Eunice. Any averagely fit person could do it with a bit of previous training. It looks more fierce than it is, but I do remember a good and exhilarating climb!

No diving here, the sea is too shallow just at this point. But I jest; I do know what you mean! Thank you again, Martine!

Hi Andy,

Great respect for the achievement!
I'll stick to safer things like motorbikes, and going out in the snowy wilderness of Germany!

It's OK! I'm not asking you to climb it. Even I had second thoughts about a repeat climb 10 years later and was saved by a sudden squall from the sea that had everyone scurrying to the pub for a pint!
