060417 Black Rocks

Overview - After a long weekend in Pembroke, I reach Derby to find no one at home - just as my fingers starting itching. A quick trip to the Black Rocks had me looking at Gaia again, but also looking at the E6-8s on the Block.

Kra S'Hoan (VS 4b):

Solo - It was drizzling when I arrived, and the traverse to the start of Gaia was just too tempting. I had a look at the crux, and the first section before continuing off leftwards. Grade seems about right, but then, it is only there to lead to greater things.

Diagonal (HS 4b):

Solo - Done on the way up to have a look at the topout for Golden Days. Does seem a little hard for the grade.
