Dave Noden on The Old Bucaneer 7B+ Photos: Si Panton

It was a crystal clear in the mountains today and Dave Noden took full advantage. Following a warm up session at the Craig y Llyn boulders the team moved to the nearby Elephantitus cave.

After repeating most of the problems on the crag Dave swarmed across the obvious leftwards lip exit from Elephantitus. Tenuous sloper hangs and a slightly committing high heelhook lead to better holds near the arÍte and a few pulls to a good finishing hold.

The Old Bucaneer rates 7B+ or thereabouts.

In the same session new face in Llanberis, Emma Twyford, flashed Down on an Elephant 7B/+
