/ Britain's hardest trad route
Three Pebble Slab is the hardest one to grade.
Three Pebble Slab, no, that's E0.
Er, the one you're having the most fun on. No, almost certainly not I would guess.
Strawberries at Tremadog. Again, no, it's just that no Brits can onsight it. Hey, it's not about the onsight anyway.
Indian Face, E9, it's just had - what - three ascents in a week? Pff, trade route!
Equilibrium, E10, just how hard can 10m of grit be?
Rhapsody, E11 at Dumbarton by Dave M? Well, Steve M made light work of it tho he did perhaps escape the last few moves. Anyway, it's safe as houses, almost a sports route in fact. In fact, I'm going to give it a whirl next weekend.
The Walk of Life, E12, by James Pearson. Actually, maybe it wasn't quite E12 after all.
The Long Hope...?
Who really knows ;)
Yeah but Franco clearly does not have the experience to grade it H8.
So its probably just.......... E10!
Boring hell Andy!
I like it how the first pitch is 'the serious pitch' with the other two only being 'desperate and bold' or 'extremely bold'!
I reckon it would have to have F8c+ difficulties with death-fall potential in a high mountain setting.
MacLoed certainly rates it as the hardest trad route he's climbed. Say no more!
Probably is for the onsight though. Will be tougher than that ploddy Macleod route I'd imagine.
