Titan and soft terror, by Stevie Haston.

So it was to Sector Titan, I went with Irish Alex. Sector Titan only has one amenable route, the rest are hard core, but even Titan packs it in! With routes up to 8a and big exposure Titan is a bit of a bargain at 5a and 6a for its respective pitches.

 the approach to Sector titan involves an odd crawl along a letterbox way above the sea, and then a 55 meter abseil!

 the Abseil or rappel is a bit overhanging and committing!

 Irish Alex is there at 11 o'clock from my pointy Scarpa shoe, sadly they discontinued this shoe, Iave done a crazy amount of climbing in these shoes!

 Alex taking his own sweet time on a very easy traverse section of Titan.

Second big Abseil of the day we did three, this one 60 meters!

Alex had unfinished business with a route called Everlasting -a 43 meter pitch which seems crazy when you look at it. He did great on it! Next was the infamous Styx and Stoners, a route that has humiliated many. It did not let us down. We ambled off through the flowery ledge and up a fisherman's route to finish. A good solid day out.
