Following on from our recent report of Katy Whittaker climbing The Angel's Share, we also heard that she made an impressive repeat of the classic gritstone wall problem of Walk on By (Font 7C+) at Curbar in the Peak District.

We 'think' (always happy to be proved wrong) that Katy's ascent is the first female ascent of this technical and thin problem.

Nice one Katy! And well done on Angel's Share too!

It seems that The Angel's Share has proved a popular choice as we also heard that Ned Feehally also climbed it last Saturday.
