[Gaz Parry Climbs True North - F8c 320, 6 kb]Gaz Parry has climbed the super-stamina F8c True North at Kilnsey, Yorkshire.

Commenting on his blog, Gaz describes his motivation for the line:

"A long time ago I witnessed a ground breaking fast ascent of True North. That day I had the pleasure of holding Ian Vickers' ropes as he worked the route and redpointed it on his first attempt all within 2 hours. Even by today's standards this would be considered a fast ascent of an 8c. Since then the seed had been sowed that one day I would clip the chains having repeated True North."

Effort Gaz, especially after finishing 3rd in the BBC just over a week ago - powerful bouldering and stamina 8c back to back!

In reply to MattH: Cheers chaps. I went to Kilnsey also yesterday and did a fun link up. No new climbing really apart from maybe one move. But it combines two amazing routes. Climb 50 for 5 to the belay (dont clip it) then step left in The Ashes to finish up this. Awesome. If its not been done before it is called Freddies Revenge 8a.

Nice one Gaz.
Now, can anyone name any other route names with grammatical errors?

I posted this over on ukb, but Dal did this few weeks back.

Dal did this linkup last wednesday or thursday (15 or 16th), on saturday she then did sticky wicket into the ashes, both joining the ashes at the crux without going through the eyes. both look nails. with the 50 for 5 link up being more nails-erer (proper grammer)

Cheers
Tim

p.s. have a top time back in spain again mate.

In reply to tbertenshaw: Cool good for Dal, i did it through the eyes as this looked like the logical line to me. Great link up though which ever way you go.
