In this video from
Wild Country, Tom Randall and Ed Hamer take on the E7 traverse route of Silent Scream, first climbed by Pete Whittaker back in March 2009.
The route traverses the Cioch Block at Burbage South and follows a line of tiny holds below the E4 Silent Spring before finishing up the existing E7 Masters of the Universe.
Tom Randall and Pete Whittaker had an active spring on the grit (and sandstone) and in only a few weeks they clocked up quite a set of routes and in very good style. Although this list is now a few weeks old and they have no doubt cranked many more hard routes, it still makes for interesting reading.
Accompanying the list are some photos of the classic Master's Edge at Millstone (E7 6b) with all three climbers in action - Tom Randall, Ed Hamer and Pete Whittaker. You can see a full gallery of these shots on Climbers.net.
