Bitter sweet memories of my few times doing this route...The last time I got hit full face by a falling rock, then flew 12 foot through the air landing on my back, and bouncing off a mate behind me en route! Lucky to come out of it with just a bloody and swollen face, which was black and blue for about a month. :shock:
Apart from that... :D



Ouchhhhhhhhh - that sounds like an "epic" hope you were alright! Did it happen before reaching the ridge proper as I did notice lots of loose stones and stuff on the approach above the waterslab. Luckily on the day I did it there was no one ahead of me :shock:


It happened to the RHS of the main ridge in a steep stone gully, my mate had gone ahead and disturbed some rocks :(

Amazing video again, didn't realise climbing the bem was so exposed and scary looking. Was wondering what type of mini tripod you use on the hill, it looked very handy. :clap:

Thanks Heather, the headcam makes it look a little scarier than it is! Like the Star wars quote - does that make me Han Solo- lol :lol:
