Wall Left of Mission Impossible Falls to Bangor Student:

Bangor based university student George Ullrich has suceeded on the blank wall left of Mission Impossible at Gallt yr Ogof in the Ogwen Valley, North Wales.

George has named his new route Cool Runnings and suggested a grade of E8 6c.

"Since August I've been up there 5 or 6 time messing around on a rope working it all out.  There is 4 pieces of decent natural pro on the whole route, making it a little bold at the start, but just about manageable." commented George on his blog.
