4 out of 5 stars solo by circumstance

was hoping to pick up a partner, and showed up to the crag on a sunny afternoon. There was no climbers to be found. The lovely woman (a North Carolina transplant) picking blackberries gave me a knowing look and says: "it's Friday" (translation: Friday in Ireland means only one thing... pubs over crags... DOH). So I got the crag to myself with no one but Bailey (an Irish Sheepdog) to watch over me.

I picked the most obvious route I can find... up the easy face on to the square block... two big face moves and traverse to a second face (the only sketchy move given the lack of rope) and up the dihedral.

The downclimb was the real tricky part... since I couldn't top out. NOT recommended for soloing.
