Agreed! Was up at The Cromlech on the Saturday. Super inspiring stuff seeing 30+ E points going down including two ascents of Right Wall!

Was on the Cromlech on Saturday late afternoon when Eve did Right Wall. She did extremely well, even when her feet popped off just above the ledge. She was very calm and extremely humble when we were chatting at the top while we both belayed our partners up (we were on Cemetery Gates at the same time).

Well done Eve.

Today's news feels like a very stark contrast to the fantastic spirit of international collaboration and support we had last week, especially as so many of our guests were from other EU countries.
