Saw this project on whatever dvd it was on, looked like you could take a huge fall.

"Muy Caliente, E10 6c" and "only a minute from the car park" - don't think I'll be ticking that one just yet ... Damn good effort, Tim!

Great effort Tim! We saw him on a previous attempt last year from across the ford. That photo does not do justice to how big the runout is.

In reply to Fultonius: The E grade indicates both a routes seriouness and how hard the climbing is....yawn

Or extremely sustained and death.

Isn't that the first E10 6c?

In reply to Dark Mavis:

To Hell and Back was E10 6c. If it's basically a hard sport route with a very long run out, with a possibility of decking, then I imagine it could get the grade, even if it's not a total death route.

No need to be patronising, Fultonius is well aware of how the E grade works.


Fantastic effort by Tim

Bumped into Tim and Ged earlier in year walking toward Stennis Ford. We teased him a little about getting it done...something about a broken ankle recovering was his excuse;-)

Great effort, looks phenomenal climbing.
