Just in from James Pearson - almost flashes Muy Caliente! (E10) and gets it second go ground-up.

James commented:

"I tried to Flash the route, this was the main reason for my trip to Pembroke and what I had been training for over the last few months, but sadly I fell on the very last hard move (still super happy to have gotten that far, it was almost perfect but just wasn't to be).  I then climbed it the next day on my next try, making ground up 2nd try."

The route, graded E10 and first climbed by Tim Emmett, has seen repeats from Canadian climber Steve Townshend and Scottish super-climber Dave MacLeod.

It is thought to be in the region of F8b in terms of physical difficulty, and features a very long runout.
