Back to The Roaches, and of course, the reason I was there was that I was once again being taxi; this time to take Ben to join his brother and friends for a spot of climbing.
Damascus Crack is a single pitch climb, graded VS (Very Severe; harder than the bands of Difficult, but less hard than Extreme). The guide book describes the route as 12m, but the alternate, buttress finish adds a bit to that height.
Mark led this one with Ben on belay waiting to second.
Once at the top, Mark set up the belay and it was Ben's turn to climb.
Nicely done :)
