Pete Robins on The Boston Struggler, E5/6 6b, Gogarth

Pete Robins is one of a group of talented trad climbers currently residing in North Wales.  In this short film he does battle with the not-so-conventional Gogarth E5/6 'The Boston Struggler'.

George Smith (the first ascentionist) watches on with glee, as Pete realises that when it comes to the rack, George has given him "all the wrong sizes and not enough of them..."

What exactly does Pete call George right at the end?


This clip was going to appear in the upcoming film 'Upside Down Wales', but the film team over in Wales kindly gave it to UKClimbing.com instead. More info on Upside Down Wales will be released on UKC soon - watch this space.
