In reply to Tom, UKC News Editor: Well done Katherine! That's hardly a classic 'first E7' tick.

In reply to Tom, UKC News Editor: Good work! It must be a lot cooler in the peak than it is in South Wales!

Was at Burbage North yesterday, it certainly wasn't cool. The breeze was pleasantly chilly but the rock was rather warm to the touch.
Definitely not ideal conditions.

Just spoke to Dave Brown and they should have some images of Katherine's ascent up at their blog in an hour or so.

Effort Katherine - it wasn't too sweaty on the grit I thought yesterday - just enough breeze keeping it cool and the friction was okay....nice one - lets see if any other big numbers get bagged before the summer!!

Cheers

It must be quite satisfying to have one's route regarded as an aspirational tick?

Good work by Schirrmacher, btw.
