Here’s a little video I made two weeks ago of Pete Robins climbing Agua Caliente in the Llanberis Pass.
Agua is a nice little micro route with a tough (V8?) crux. It was first climbed headpoint style, with poor/weird gear – sliders etc. We thought the nice peg on the neighbouring E5 was so close, it just had to be clipped! This reduces the seriousness of the route, but does make a lot of sense.
Pete made short work of the route, but he did fall off more times than not on top rope, probably due to the amount of heckling he received from the ground-crew.
We particularly liked the fact that Pete is now cover-star on several local guidebooks.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/4314057 w=600&h=450]
