The Constant Gardner

A few weeks ago myself and Iain did another new route just to the right of Romantic Reality on the Tunnel Wall. Unusually Iain already had a route name in mind beforehand; The Constant Gardner, to reflect the amount of time he had spent cleaning routes recently. It went at about E6 6b, 6b, 5a and is worth a couple of stars at least. Iain led both the hard pitches, this was particularly impressive given it started drizzling when he was on the second one. One of us will get round to writing a route description at some point, but the line can be seen on the topo below.

Iain leading the first pitch. Good climbing, but hard with not very much gear.
