5 out of 5 stars Ganesh

Went up with Rory Burke around 2pm and was back at The Shed in Stowe having beers at 6pm. Mindblowing exposure and though provoking climbing on friable rock make for a full experience! Thanks to Rory for the best belay in the western hemisphere!

Climbed Ganesh with Paul and Derreck in tow. Split pitch 3 into two pitches (so not really a proper redpoint).
