/ NEWS: Birkett E8 Repeated
> You need to read http://www.climbonline.co.uk/news.htm more often, it was reported there over a month ago!
I do Simon thanks and yes I was aware of it. I was waiting on more info but the person was on holiday. Talked to Dave Birkett yesterday and got a bit more info.
Steve Crowe's photo is very impressive, you get to see the whole route:
Was talking to Dave Birkett today and he said if he finds time between rescuing sheep off crags and doing his stonework there may be other routes at this fine crag.
We watched Dave repeat the route a fearless three times in a row - though he did rest the third time(!), which resulted in this cracking shot taken by Al.
(You can always delete me if this is an inappropriate post, cheers Dave H
Very appropriate Dave. Looking forward to Al's film....
SUMMER IN THE LAKES
Photography by Alastair Lee. I've been making the most of some scorching conditions in the Lake District capturing some great mountain light with this new selection of summer prints from the high fells - for further info and image pop ups see MOUNTAIN PRINTS..
Some of these shots will feature in our forthcoming film about climbing in the Lake District where top local cragster Dave Birkett (as seen on one of his many spectacular routes top left) will play a starring role.
We've been prepping a trailer for the film and a rough of it is viewable on-line. I can email you the link, or post it here if that wouldn't be inappropriate. Hopefully you'll be impressed.
If Mick says its ok I'll post it.
