world CLIMBERS party
From Steve Mc Clure:
"John Dunne made the first ascent grading it 8c+/9a.
Moffat claimed it easier but broke ‘crucial’ holds off and declared it not possible but Dunne insisted he hadn’t actually used the broken holds."
Anyway, whatever the history, Adam was on redpoint within an hour, and through the crux with ease. Unfortunately the top section was soaking wet, blatantly obvious even for spectators 100m away. He came close, but slipped off!
Back on the ground he explained the moves, a few monster reaches, perhaps above me considering my XXX cm shorter reach.
8c+/9a was the grade..."
