The Mammut Climbing Team are in the Peak District and have been active on some hard gritstone routes.
The team, consisting of David Lama, Anna St÷hr, Alex Johnson, Magnus Midtboe, Jakob Schubert and CÚderic Lachat have been ticking some big routes in the last few weeks. Some of the team have had to extend their stay due to the ash cloud that is disrupting flights in Europe.
We don't have full details of exactly which climbers have done what, but David Lama has ticked Parthian Shot (E9), Master's Edge (E7) and Simba's Pride (E8) amongst others.
Interestingly the team's ticklist corresponds almost exactly to a list of routes published in the UKC Forums that have been covered in large chalk tick-marks, a practise that is strongly frowned upon in the Peak District.
