Vertical wall reset

Rob and Dan are re setting the vertical wall. This involves maintenance work on the volumes before they can be put back in place. We have created a classic layback up the side where it meets the livingstone wall pillar - this can alse be jammed up with thin hands or off hands if you dont! Plus a wide chimney/bridging feature on the right.
