More new blocs
With little else to go at and in the middle of a couple of weeks of holidays, it was back out to the new area with the Raven to find some more new problems. Jackpot! A classic wall around 45 degrees with some hardish and really hard problems... First up was 'Riding the Pave' V8 followed quickly by 'The Shock Doctrine' V10. Both are instant classics, following obvious weaknesses in the rock. There is one project to go still, which is proper nails, smallish holds, big moves and then and absolutely desperate final move consisting of a big throw from two poor holds. Should be around 12 or 13. Back there on Saturday I reckon and we'll see what happens.
