Nice clip - thanks.
The photo caption says Burbage S but the text says Burbage N by the way.
so do we assume by the title of the route that this will be his last ever E10?
The route was, in his word "something to leave behind"
Transcript of what James said:
""For the last few years I've been trying to find something on grit that's really hard - a really good line - quite a standout feature, rather than some poxy squeezed in eliminaty hard thing, something really outstanding to do.
I'd been racking my brain for ages, so to finally manage to do something like this really cool looking arete it's really good. To try and leave my "mark", if you know what I mean.
Because there's not much stuff left on Grit, which is a shame because the climbing is so nice and the routes are all really good; there's just not much left of great quality. I'm happy I've done it."
