Ian Carr reports:
"We had been at Millstone for a few weekends on the trot (preparing for a trip to Yosemite!) and had seen the two Poles top-roping the Masters Edge.
On the last weekend in September, in not too perfect conditions, with some wind and a deteriorating forecast the two lads both from the south of Poland and living and working in the UK, pulled the ropes and made consecutive ascents within 5 minutes of each other. Within half an hour it was raining.
Both made very slick ascents, placing the tri-cams from the ground."
