Martin Cathrow has been in touch with UKC to report more damage to classic routes on the Cornish granite.
It isn't all bad... [ full story ]
Rumours have been circulating for a while, saying old warrior, Stevie Haston has onsighted Didier Berthod's Greenspit, a perfect 12m hands and fingers roof crack in the Orco valley, Italy, weighing in around 8b+. This should be the 4th ascent after Berthod, Nico Favresse and Tom Randall. Stevie sort of confirmed it to me this morning, but didn't want to break the news before UK Climbing had published their report. Fair enough. Turned out it was flash.
