Jude Spancken, 27 kbGerman climber and photographer, Jude Spancken, (31) based in Llanberis, North Wales, has just made an onsight ascent of Ron Fawcett's "Come on arms do your stuff" route, Lord of the Flies, E6 6a on the Cromlech, Llanberis Pass, North Wales.

Dave Brown of Hot Aches who was filming Jude's ascent writes,

"Lord Of The Flies at The Cromlech is a route that anyone climbing at that grade would aspire to. A fantastic line in a spectacular location, a full 35/40m (110ft) pitch with a reputation for being quite bold.

Jude is one of the most graceful climbers I have ever seen. The ascent was beautiful, precise, effortless."
