  • Silver Tongued Devil 2020

    Saturday 18-Jan-2020

    We saw others had climbed it 2-3 weeks ago. It was reported to be in good shape and a great climb. I've been going in the Ghost for 15 years and never seen it so well formed. One of our group was eager and even asked if others wanted to lead it after. In the end we only lead it once. While two of us stood off to the left and thought it looked like there were a number of rest stances and agreed it looked good, we found it was actually very brittle, quite pumpy as a result, and didn't yield the cave as easy as we initially thought. Definitely a stout lead and the cold made getting screws in a challenge at times.
    The climb gets significant sun exposure and while this past weeks frigid temps have limited sun damage, the next few days of high temps could have an impact on the climb. As per usual I wouldn't expect this unusual climb to stick around long so get it soon.

    Regardless this climb is a classic and as grade fours go, Frank surely was a silver tongued devil but thanks for the climb and its cheeky grade
