Haston's 08

The new routes above Pema and Cpt. Hook have turned out to be better than expected the two guys Andrea Arici and Raffaele Mercuriali who have developed it have done a good job. The standard dry-tooling drill has been used to create placements but only where necessary and there are a lot of dodgy slopers in the roof of the cave that I was wishing were drilled deeply as I tried to keep the tension on the stein pulls! I'm not sure about the grades there; Lacrime de Sangue felt ok and i'm sure it wouldn't get M11 at the Zoo but then the straight up (Sexy something?) felt pretty tricky!!! I'll put it down to style.
