Pulling hard yesterday

Duncan pulling hard through the roof

We met up down in the Rhone valley & drove over towards Martigney to climb at Shakti, a small crag next to the river, close to Lavey les Bains.

It's a steep crag, but the climbing is generally on positive holds even if a bit small at times when you take in the overhanging nature of a lot of the routes. Just stepping off the ground you're working hard & working through the middle moves it's easy to get pretty pumped.

You get a feel for the steepness when you're being lowered down & you end up on the ground 6m out from the base of where you started!

Great fun climbing at Shakti
