Barny Hamon attempts Bored of Administration as a clean aid route at Le Guet on the island of Guernsey.

“After traversing across on fairly good gear the thin vertical crack awaits, which only takes micro’s and a small nut,” Hamon tells Rock and Ice.
“I’m stood on a #4 BD offset micro when I pulled it out of the crack.

“Broke one 2 kN rated micro and unclipped the piece that makes the corner at the bottom.”

Hamon fell past the camera, which was mounted halfway up the wall on an in-situ peg, but he didn’t hit ground, as it might appear. The rope and his belayer
caught the fall when he was about five meters from the deck.

“There was a ledge directly below the camera,” he say. “I missed this by falling directly down. No injuries so I was lucky in that respect.”

Happy Friday and stay safe out there this weekend!
