There and back again

Adventures of Norbert

Climbing "Queens Way" on Myouji (climbers' speak) / Myoujou (normal speak) / 明星 (Kanji) in Niigata-ken

We first missed that start of the route and made the first pitch of one of the most difficult climbs there, "Captured" (キャプチュード). The first pitch was something like 5.11a/b when climbed free - but this is something nobody wants to try on protection worse than anything I have seen before, scary. I was so happy that I made it up in A1 climbing without tearing out all these rubbish things in there.

Anyway, when we finally started the Queen's Way it was nice climbing, bit loose rock at times, not too hard.
