The North Face athletes James Pearson and Gaz Parry, with some friends, are on a European road trip. 40 days of climbing, socialising with the European climbing community, giving climbing Masterclasses and slideshows at various climbing walls, and taking in the sights and culture. They will be visiting 20 different climbing venues and climbing 20 of Europe's best 8a's. So far they have climbed Adrenochrome at Lulworth Cove, Dorset; Raindogs at Malham Cove, North Yorkshire; Abstrakt at Hylteberget, one of Sweden's first 8a's.
