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.
