Toru, the youngster who made headlines last year by ripping it up on the Peak gritstone (see UKC News) was again on good form, this time on the perfect golden granite of Cornwall.
As reported on the BMC Website, the top ticks from the international meet were:
In this video from Mark Glaister, Toru solos the small but technical arete of Storms Over Africa at Cribba Head. The route is very close to a crack on the right, and Storms Over Africa was originally climbed with this peg offering some protection. It has since been straightened out - and it is the straight and protection-less version that Toru climbs here.
Warning - this video contains some swearing by concerned onlookers!
