|Some rare sunshine in the Northern Cories|
|The first pitch of Damnation|
|Moving up towards the sweeping corner on the second pitch|
From the belay you can see the initial slab and groove but the steep corner remained up and out of sight. It looked pretty dry and only have one or two wet bits so I decided to give it a go (not noticing the sun had vanished from the sky at that point). After 20m of climbing in the groove you reach the corner and then the fight begins. After a move or two you end up just above a rusty peg. Some hard moves using mud filled holds and 'yarding on slopers' sees you through the hard bit and eventually the top. Excellent!
