Glasgow based climber Rob Sutton has made what is thought to be the first Deep Water Solo (DWS) ascent of the Dorset testpiece Never Kneel to Skeletor (F7c+) on Saturday the 24th of July.
Stu Littlefair commented:
"Although not the most difficult DWS route at Stair Hole, Lulworth, the route has held out despite attention from many strong climbers, perhaps because it features a savagely technical crux very high on the route."
Rob did the route on his third go, with no roped inspection, climbing from the water up.
Thanks go to Stu Littlefair for this report.
