Nope, did class to get where he did like in one push. Luke Hunt did the whole lot with a cheeky rest. Some impressive climbing, shame the decent light had gone by this time.
I've massively lightened this photo!

F7b+ on a mountain crag. Sort of gives you the tiniest of ideas of how hard something like Echo wall must be, with far worse gear and 7 whole french grades harder climbing. Respect Cleod!
