Hawkcliffe, a partially quarried crag in West Yorkshire has recently seen some attention from Jordan and Naomi Buys and strong local Dave Sutcliffe, with hard first ascents and repeats of Birdsong, E7 6c and Charlie Don't Surf, E8 6c.
The video shows Naomi Buys climbing Birdsong, E7 6c, the second of three E7's that Naomi climbed that week, which was reported back in May in this UKC News Item.
Jordan Buys is captured making the first ascent of a short, bouldery new route; Air Hawk, E6 6c and repeating Pigeon, E6 6c and the bold and tenuous Charlie Don't Surf, E8 6c.
Dave Sutcliffe also gets onto the other side of the lens and makes the first ascent of Birdpong at E5/6 6b. All in all, an action packed video!
