Wild at Heart: It’s proper-tough at solid 25 and the gear is thin and hard to place. But it’s the fourth pitch, the soaring arête pitch that is the raison d’etre, the jewel in the crown, the main event.

Guy and I had spent the afternoon on Table Mountain working on our Space Race project.
The beginning of the weekend, and the end of yet another gruelling week of labour and stress. For a select few, however, that statement could not have been more false.
The route was opened by Dave Cheesmond, Chris Lomax and Greg Lacey in 1978. They spent two days on the wall and used quite a bit of aid.
Apparently I’m likely to fall off everything I climb if I don’t drink tea beforehand, but I’m willing to take that risk.
In 1977 the great climbers, my friends Dave Cheesmond and Tony Dick established the first route up Yellowwood Amphitheatre.
Five days earlier I had made a big decision. One that had being weighing on my mind for a year… I decided I would ask Guy to do it with me and I felt a huge relief.
