/ Big day out on WImberry
"Big day at Wimberry yesterday Tom Randall gets 2nd ascent of 'Appointment with Death' Pete Whittaker adds new E9"
From WC's Facebook...
The new E9 is apparently the arete below Appointment with Fear. And Nathan Lee also did Order of the Pheonix.
From WC's Twitter.
Thought it might have been as I saw people on it last week, good effort and nice to see some traffic at Wimberry.
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.
hot aches got the footage, dunno when they'll put it on, soon I guess.
A few good pics on the Wild Country facebook page, and some blogs by the respective climbers.
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.
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.
Trident,Freddies finale and blue lightening crack?
All get hvs but I doubt many people think they are

Oh, well, if we're going to quote mere provincial publications, my old guide has Blue Lights as bog standard VS. Roll up, you Mississippi Direct leaders! :)
