Well done guys! Did you move any of the bolts on Paws? For example I would have moved the chains up by about 5m to the top of that feature, and the last couple bolts are in very balancy positions. To stop a route simply because that is 25m off the ground is contrived!

Hi warren

yes i moved the bolts on paws a bit and extended the route by about 6 meters. I think it flows much better and finishes in a logical place. The rope also now runs free of any tufas. the extra 6 meters of climbing is not hard but not a doddle either and is also a pretty airy adding a modicum of excitement.

Jimbo that is the best news I have read on this forum for a long time: Well done! Looking forward to padding up the complete Paws. I had always thought of that route as a wasted opportunity, stoked to see you corrected a past wrong.
