Bombay Duck

Leader: Brian Watts 22 September 2018

A party of four climbed the ultra-classic Bombay Duck on the morning of Saturday 22 September 2018. The meet was initially postponed from the previous Saturday due to rain. This turned out to be a good decision as the weather the following Saturday was really warm and lovely. However, the first pitch crux was a little wet on the hand traverse after a lot of weekday rain. Fortunately everyone got through fine. The rest of the route was perfectly dry, as we expected. Everyone had a great time and agreed that this climb really does deserve the five star rating it has. It has a stunning aesthetic, well-protected line. It was very worthy of leading as an MCSA club meet and should be done again this summer
