Congrats to the both of you, it looks pretty nails! I like the double toehook towards the end.

In reply to UKC News: Some funny editing on that video. Was that the full accent, or was that missed and this is put together from footage of other goes?

Looks hard though, good effort.

Excellent effort guys!

Would have been nice to have a little more info about the place and first ascentionists perhaps?

In reply to El3ctroFuzz: I'm not, normally, one to post on these forums and almost didn't but am in agreement with you Fuzzyman!

Lovely to see 'da yoofs' of the South West on the front page of UKC sending a classic Dartmoor test piece, well done to you groms!

However, as there wasn't much coverage at the time, much respect should be thrown in the direction of the first ascentionist, Mikey Cleverdon, for putting the problem up in the first place.

The grey haired spotter at the end... looks a bit like Graham Alderson.

Well done guys.

Correcto Brutus,

Thats UKC in a nutshell. If you aint best friends with the editor, it doesnt matter if you do the first ascent of a classic 8a dartmoor roof, you still dont get any press.

Pff..
