I know this is probably a stupid question to those expertised in climbing, but how do you cross these gaps??

Climbing the gaps

Hi Tony,

very few questions are stupid!
Actually you have to abseil down on one side to the bottom of the gap (it is wise to let a piece of rope hanging for the return trip) walk across and climb up again. Simple as that :)
