Guy Robertson has had an exceptional Scottish season so far, with a flurry of desperate new routes and fast repeats of various test pieces. Partnering up with some of the UK's leading winter experts including; Pete Benson, Mark Garthwaite and Ian Parnell, Robertson and friends are showing the way forward for Scottish winter climbing.

Repeating routes like Centurion (VIII,8) in a single push and The Secret, Robertson has also played a key role in the completion of several cutting edge new routes.

Sundance, VIII,8 on Beinn Eighe follows the original summer E2. Dawn Grooves, VIII,8 and Slochd Wall, IX,8 on Sgurr Mhic Choinnich, Skye, follow the respective summer lines and are very committing undertakings in a remote location.

What is most impressive about these achievements is the length and seriousness of the routes. Full days in remote locations seem to be the signature of Robertson and friends.
