Good effort for her, I'd love to do Supercool.

Mick, there was an Exeter lass who pissed Just Revenge at Anstey's on her first redpoint last weekend. Maybe you want to research a news piece on her too.

Corrections..in bold, and changed on the News page in the relevant news item : http://www.ukclimbing.com/news/item.php?id=49576

Ruth joins Jenny Woodward, Lucy Creamer, Dalvinder Sohdi and Karin Magog to reach the chains of Supercool (Creamer also climbed the adjacent Huecool, an 8b)

Apologies for that.

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKClimbing.com:
You should probably also mention that Karin also climbed Huecool.
...Also just heard that Ruth's other half, Awesome Mawson, has repeated Cry Freedom.
Nice work all round.

Well done, Ruth.

No offence of nuffin but that photo has left me very uninspired to go to Gordale.

Haha you already found it yourself Mick. I didn't know who she was, and assumed she was local because her friends were.

The photo was taken by a passing tourist then emailed to Ruth.

Go to Goredale Will Hunt, do Face Route and other classics.

Oh and take your professional photographer with you.
