Awesome. I repeated some of this route in '95 with the late John Rosholt. Pretty sure Hamish came up with us. I didn't bother trying the clearly under-graded and massively runout slab pitch (which I think Hamish had given 11 something?), taking an easier variation to get to the crux 12b wall pitch: http://www.ukclimbing.com/images/dbpage.html?id=3991
From memory the route had a big rep because Croft had fallen off the bouldery start to the 12b wall pitch and it was the first time he'd fallen off something in 3 years.
Brilliant! What an ace looking route. Hamish Fraser must have been a force to reckon with. A sort of Canadian Bachar... Bachar/Yerian?
(Was waiting for him to shit himself all the way through, though ;) )
How did they film the initial slab? toy helicopter like Mammut? impressive
Brilliant. Look forward to the rest of the series.
Anyone else had problems playing this video?
