Dave MacLeod has made the third ascent of John Dunne's test-piece Breathless on Tophet Wall (left) on the Napes, Wasdale in the Lakes. John gave the route E10 7a when he first did it in 2000 and Dave Birkett didn't argue with the grade when he repeated it. However after his ascent Dave now comments that the route felt easier than several of his E9 routes in Scotland! Full story on PlanetFear.
