This is really on the lower cliff, and should be moved to appear immediately after
Think it is sorted now, Dave, and Cascade Crack re-edited as well. Topo needs re-paginating though.
★ 13.Frostbite's for Wusses
I climbed this on a top rope around 1990, probably the same time as Discipline. Didn't lead it as it would have required fiddling around with pre-placed pro which wasn't really our approach.
It was called ‘Frostbite for Wusses’ because the hands were a bit cold to start with, it was mid-winter, July.
Not cold feet, as the description suggests, not sure what that comment is hinting at, there was just some snow on the ground.
The pre placed gear (1 or 2 very dodgy wires) would have popped if Kim (then only 17yrs old) had fallen,
so effectively a kind of solo (grade 20) lead really.
Climbed Centaur today, big lose block underneath the crack before the roof, havent climbed it in about a year so cant remember if it was there then but it felt like it would go ground/belayer-wards very quickly if yanked on. Climb safe.
