Worlds Apart History
“Despite laughing off this crag as a complete bag of shit in 1989, Jeremy Colenso and I returned in 1991. Jeremy focused on the crack lines on the left of the wall where he opened two traditional routes, named Testing the Limits and Awakenings. I had just bought a drill and set to work on Daze of Thunder. The route originally topped out but the finish was forgotten by subsequent ascensionists. In 1993, Colenso returned to bolt crack lines on the left, the result was Delete Button which erased the trad routes.” *
