Diccan/Alum 25th May was created by keithm
Joint Wessex and YSS outing, although the YSS were the minority :( . With numbers touching 20 it was decided to rig Diccan and all routes in Dolly Tubs and Alum Pot, everybody then filled there boots and ticked off whatever routes they fancied. After we had all had enough everything was derided except the big one AKA North West Direct, this was left rigged as a couple of the Wessex wanted to do it on ladders and use the rope to self line.

Trip time 5hrs 30
Cast of a thousand :laugh:

Keith,
Do you know the name of the Wessex photographer who was down Alum - and does he have a website. I'd like a look at the ones of me on North West Direct but forgot to ask his details.
