[YES! Tim Emmett - a happy man, on the flat grassy top of Stennis Ford - SAFE!, 2 kb]Full details and photos of Tim Emmett's new route at Pembroke:


“The section to the gear would warrant E9 in its own right, featuring F8a climbing in a very dangerous position...

...The crux comes after the gear and is the equivalent of a V7 boulder problem. It bumps the whole route up to F8b..."

Good info and also the surrounding routes. An appropriate name too (although I'd already put a bet on it being "Spicy Times". Oh well!

Bet we're going to here no end of questions about glycogen dumping now. Everyone loves a short cut and would rather know about this than the hard work that he's put in over the years.
In reply to Adam Lincoln: Evidence on the net (so reliable) says it works but you put more weight on afterwards.

Yes, am aware of what it is. My comment was meant more of a, seems to be becoming popular 'kind of interesting'.

I have a question about glycogen dumping. Why are you talking about it? I've read the article twice and don't see any reference to it.

This looked amazing in Welsh Connections. I wish UKC wouldn't say super route though; this isn't Top Gear.

In reply to UKC News: I just found an awesome extract from the Welsh Connections DVD by Bamboo Chicken - on vimeo.

This vid features Tim on the E8 Point Blank and then attempting his project.

It's a really good bit of film.

Nice one on getting the video up. Me and Doug were sat across the ford watching this happen. I really thought he had blown it at the end of the runout! Very scary to watch indeed!

In reply to Jack Geldard - Editor - UKC: Effin' brilliant video! I felt quite queasy watching him slap some of those moves before the Rock 6. Well done to Tim and the film team.

Thanks for posting the link to the Video, very interesting, gives a great perspective, I was there on Sunday when he was setting of up the route and he was making it look easy up to the first gear. Unfortuneatley I had to head back to work so missed the main event.

Very impressive.

There were two video cameras there this sunday so I guess we'll be seeing footage of the sucessful ascent sometime.

Best video in ages. And Tim is such a likeable and approachable guy; mega psyched but down to earth at the same time. Couldn't wish it on a nicer bloke, good effort Timmy.

Superb and terrifying video. As one who thinks most climbing films are as dull as dish-water, I have to say I found this one gripping.

Cheers

Tremendous video - so much more engaging than the many soulless bolt clipping and narcissistic bouldering ones

It is a great video - will be awesome to see Tim completing the route.

Side topic on great climbing videos - also from Welsh Connections is the short "To the Rainbow". Would recommend this to climbers and non-climbers as a truly inspirational short film.

Excellent video, excellent achievement. It certainly looks like E10. I liked the "spicy times" comment mid-runout!

Really inspiring. I see Ghost Train has had some attention.....

Any knowledge on how clean it is/many ascents this year?
