/ surprised this hasnt been a news item......
Nice to see new routes in the lakes actually being recorded.
Annoying when new routes are done, but no real details ever come out of them.
*Must be getting old & grumpy
Good post! I saw a rope up there last year and folk on here were asking what was being worked... Saw on Facebook TV that this is what was going on, great to hear.
Yesterday I was at hodge close and someone (not hard to guess) was DWSing - wondered if this was another new route. Haven't got a topo of hodge so couldn't identify if it was an existing route.
Congratulations to Adam on the new line.
I saw something on Neil Gresham's facebook saying he'd put up a whole bunch of new DWS lines at Hodge Close so could have been him?
I was up there a couple of weeks ago looking at the gear swaying gently in the breeze and thinking how hard and scary the climbing above the last gear looked....I doubt you'll need to que!
Well done Adam.
Funnily enough I messaged Natalie about this last night
Hopefully Hock (world's strongest man) will get back with a bit more info on the line. He's still bloody got it hasn't he?!?
p.s. looks like you had a good time down in the South West, you certainly had the weather for it!
Glad you're on the ball Rob!
Would be great to read a bit more about it, a lot of "new" rock on that section of crag.....
& Yeh we had a class week, I see you did Day Tripper at Lands End down there too what a route!
Sounds about right, Gresham & Co have also bolted two new lines in Hodge supposedly around 7b/+
Details to follow?..........Maybe

It was him, yes. Thought it might have been a new route, it didn't look particularly easy
A new grade!
