Michele has been visiting the gritstone, and has repeated many hard routes and boulder problems, including a second try ascent of The Promise (in a highball bouldering style) a headpoint of The New Statesman (after a very high ground-fall!) and some other hard ground-up ascents such as Braille Trail.
Michele introduces this ground-up video on his Vimeo Page:
"Three classic routes from my Peak District's tour on march 2012: Braille Trail, Kaluza Klein and Master's Edge. All graded E7 6c and all climbed ground-up after watching friends trying the moves. I had a fall on the first two: quite safe on Braille Trail (slipped trying to reach the arete) and a bit more scary on Kaluza, but it's part of the fun of ground up climbing. Then I had the pleasure to flash Master's Edge on my last day on grit."
