Pete Whittaker has stuck his neck out again with a couple of hairy headpoints. At Earl crag, he made the 2nd ascent of Jordan Buys' French Duke, E9 7a (~7C+ crux, 10m up with groundfall potential according to Pete). Recently, he also made the FA of Loose control, E8 6c, at Kinder crag. Another last great in the bag.
