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.
