In other Grit new-route news, wide boy Pete Whittaker has added a line to Hall Moor Quarry, Derbyshire.
Pete has called his route De Nada and offered a grade of around E7 6c.
"It takes the arete to the right of Speak the Truth. It's quite short, but really bouldery to get off the starting ledge, to a bolder sort of finish. I ended up doing it twice in the end, once with a pad, once without. The pad makes the start move off the ledge way easier because it lifts you higher into the starting undercuts."
Good effort guys, and lets hope the rain gives way to a great grit season this winter.
