Hendrik on Medical Incision. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

I’m finally nearing the end of the set of photos from last year that I still had to blog about. Just the one I’m sharing today and another climbing photo from the Christmas holidays. This is from the start of winter in the lovely valley of Wied il-Għasel in Mosta. As it happens, I was at this very place last Sunday, climbing the same route, except I did it as a sport route. Here, my friend Hendrik-Jan was climbing the route as a trad route. I was going to say “in the same way the first ascensionist must have done”, but that isn’t true in this case. According to the 2007 guide book, this route was first climbed by Ian Barnett in 1989 as a free solo.
