Centennial Challenges

Centennial Glen, Main wall, late afternoon sun

An afternoon of adventure at the Glen with the usual suspects. 
A quick warmup lap on Hairy Horrace - 23, followed by a few hard yards before ticking Iona - 24.
Gene gave the fight of his life on Padington - 25, with some impressive crimping and refined face climbing. The remaining glimpses of sunlight were spent working the moves of Padington and Horrace Herod, with inspiring fights and good progress. 

A late walkout was lit by the supernal glow of dense mountains mist, accompanied by the ethereal chorus of black cockatoos.

Paul gliding effortlessly through some small holds as a flurry of chalk is cast into the air

A favourite chance photo of Gene rehearsing the crux whilst surveying the inspiring line
