Ireby Fell insitu ropes ?
« on: September 14, 2020, 04:05:07 pm »
Hi
Does anyone have current information whether the ropes are still in on the last 2 pitches of the trade route (Well and Rope pitch).

Appreciate the situation can change without notice.

Thanks

Ian

We left a rope on Well pitch in January.  There was also a rope down the longer traverse Well route.  There is/was a double 11mm on Rope pitch (short route) one knotted and one clean.  There was also some rope hanging down the upper route but I didn't try it out.

There was still that horrible thick black rope on Pussy pitch too.  You don't really need it but it can be useful. 

We have plans to return to our project in Far Frink soon so I'd appreciate if you could let us know whether the rope is still  there on Well pitch.  It was a blue/black fleck Edelrid.

Cheers

As of 19/9/20

Pussy pitch was rigged. (Newer rope not the black cable rope)

Well pitch was rigged

Rope pitch still had the 2 “substantial” ropes down.
