"Rob's just been in the shop singing the praises of his father-in-law the infamous Stevie Haston. It seems that Stevie did his first 8c+ yesterday, a route called "Descent en Enfer" at the Grotte de Sabart in Ariege (Pyrenees, France).
So as Stevie's part sponsored by V12 (he gets free coffee and anything else his other sponsors DMM and La Sportiva can't supply) we thought we should publicise this amazing feat. Not bad for a 52 year old grandad eh? There should be more in-depth accounts appearing on DMM and La Sportiva's websites, keep an eye out for them."
