Several weeks ago Andy Mitchell of Broughton-in-Furness in the Lakes repeated Dave Birkett's Nowt but a Fleein' Thing E8 on a crag called Cam in Wasdale. The climbing is bold 8a sport. This steep buttress lies above Low Adam Crag about 1 hour from the road. Protection is mainly peg runners. Mitchell, headpointed the route and was helped by Birkett on some crucial beta which saved about a day. The grade is confirmed.
