Pitch 4 The God Delusion, 4 kbAnother big repeat for Pete Macpherson and Martin Moran came earlier this month when the pair teamed up to climb The God Delusion (IX,9) in Coire nan Fhamhair, Beinn Bahn, Scotland.

"Forget the notion of easy introductory pitches on Beinn Bhan. As soon as you are five metres up this wall you feel exposed and committed..."

What a fantastic way with words Martin has!

"While Pete squatted in his tiny alcove cursing and swearing like a demented Troll" The piles will do that to you :-)

Inspirational stuff from these two and it's only mid December.

In reply to UKC News: Highly recommend a read of Martin's blog linked in the article. Very inspirational stuff!

In reply to UKC News: Great stuff indeed. One minor point though:

Surely a Red Bull aided ascent is unethical in these enlightened times?

Your name is Calum Nicholl and I claim my 'Drytoolers Guide to Grit' as a prize. ;-)

In reply to UKC News: looks cold! Have they not heard - the trend these days is to bring the tools to more forgiving climates for hard cranking... http://www.youtube.com/user/eclimb1

Great report and pictures but you really need to get your place-name proof reading sorted out!

In reply to Hardonicus: Martin uses a certain amount of poetic license when writting, but then thats what makes it such a good read! We didnt actually drink any 'Red Rooster on route' We did infact nail a quarter bottle each at the start after our 3.5hours ball ache snow plough in and the other half on the even bigger ball ache out. The 14 hours we spent on route we had as follows. 2 x chocolate Xmas cake(my mams) 12 X Jaffa cakes. 2 x Mr Kipling angel cakes. 1 x packet Jelly babies, 1 x packet Haribo tangfastic(best food for a route)!! Great route mind you.............

Cheers,

Pete

I particularly like the description of you cursing like a troll!

Brilliant effort. Well done.

ps Haribo should be main sponsors of London 2012

Mighty stuff. I think 'Red Rooster' is probably fine due to the lack of David Lama connotations. You didn't place any bolts did you?!

In reply to petemacpherson: I have to agree about tangfastic sourmix, perfect match between sweet and getting yer mooth waterin sourness, if yer eating them in the house chuck them in the freezer for a few minutes to emulate the hill experience

superb effort on God Delusion by the way

In reply to petemacpherson:
Nope. Not even slightly. Never ever heard a single profanity uttered - I think Martin must be using a large dose of poetic license.
