What's all this about a big day out at Wimbeery then? Appointment with Fear repeated?

In reply to Hardonicus: Appointment with Death you mean....

"Big day at Wimberry yesterday Tom Randall gets 2nd ascent of 'Appointment with Death' Pete Whittaker adds new E9"

In reply to stoo2k:

The new E9 is apparently the arete below Appointment with Fear. And Nathan Lee also did Order of the Pheonix.

Thought it might have been as I saw people on it last week, good effort and nice to see some traffic at Wimberry.

In reply to Hardonicus: Is there any news or videos or anything about this?

In reply to Red Rover:

Tom Randall's blog has a good report and some pics, and I saw a vid of Nathan's lead of OotP but I don't recall where, just google his name and Wimberry.

I believe it was filmed, so watch this space I guess.

In reply to Hardonicus: Cant believe these routes got done they look impossibloe. It was such a good weekend in Chew, the brilliant high summer days you get up there but in May.

In reply to Karl Wooffindin: Wherre is disconsolate, the new E6, is that the arere of appointment with death?

In reply to Red Rover: No, it,s Consolation Prize climbed on the right. How obvious was *that* for a new route but it's taken this long for someone to see it. Great work.
Phil Sneyd on 11 May 2013
In reply to Calder: Thanks. Great shot. The new Meshuga!

In reply to Frank the Husky: I heard Freddie's Finale also got repeated last week but I find that hard to believe...
Red Rover - on 11 May 2013
In reply to Hardonicus: If I climb a VS in chew I usually go home feeling heroic, those E9's must be pretty shocking.

In reply to Hardonicus:

Stupendous as all these E6 to 9 routes are, I will still be impressed by the ordinary cragsman who can say he ticked the Big Three in a day.
Red Rover - on 11 May 2013
In reply to Tom V: Whats the big 3?
Tom V - on 11 May 2013
In reply to Red Rover:

I was going to say "The three HVS's which would put most E1's to shame" but have just checked, seen and noted a couple of upgrades.
