Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark, by Stevie Haston

Stevie equipping Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark

Some routes are just special, some routes are ultra special, you know just like people, they are not like the american constitution says ....equal. Anyway did a good route which took a bit of effort and the result was worth  the work, only a couple of days work but a bit of thinking how to do it. 

If the route was in Britain it would be famous and celebrated but as it's in Gozo, or Ghawdex as it should be known. The route should really be at gogarth but it can't be as it's got bolts in, it wouldn't be allowed still, and all it is a bit tough and a bit pokey but stars of quality it has a myriad.

Do you know the music of Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark? You know the best one that's named after the plane that bombed Hiroshima Enola Gay!
So grades, cause grades are important three pitches I think it's engaged grade five but it has a discrete section of 6c slab and a huge traverse of fifty meters with two bolts so the grade is open to question, but the quality isn't, in fact I have probably not sung it's praises enough!
