The rout contains a travers and there for the assent is different to the decent. This rout is below my skill level. On my way down I placed my foot on a loss rock witch dislodged knocking another bit of rock on its way down (rock fall about 1/2m2 combined). One rock landed on the rope preventing the belayer pacing out any more rope.
Always be attentive, the assent can be as dangerous as the decent. You are not safe (even on the floor) until you have left the crag.
Sport rock climbing
