Pete had previously climbed 'Masters..' ground up... well, ground up apart from the abseil in! Maybe 'Abseil Up' is the correct style description. He then looked for a way to dispense with the ab rope.
The new route starts on the left edge of the block and traverses a line lower than the existing girdle, Silent Spring (E4 5c).
Full report with photos on the Hotaches Blog.
Pete Whittaker is sponsored by Patagonia, 5.10, The Edge Climbing Wall, Naked Ape, CAMP and Tendon Ropes.
