/ NEWS: Gaz Parry Climbs True North - F8c
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."
