Boomer's Requium

 Today was my last day out with John and my final day out this winter season.  After yesterdays grade V John and I were keen to do one more before we finish.  Today we climbed Boomer's Requium (V,5) which is such a brilliant route.  The crux pitch is nice and steep with an option to bridge out if arms are not feeling super strong.  The upper pitches have been catching the sun and softened up quite alot but didnt cause any issues.  On the last section where we moved together, John got hit by a lump of oce on this leg which meant for a slow hobble down the Red Burn as he didnt fancy down climbing Number 4.  It was another stunning day and a brilliant route to wrap up my winter season.
