80s sport climbing 'stamina merchant' Mick Lovatt has been active on the precariously loose Stigmata Buttress on Craig Dorys, Lleyn Peninsula. At 59, Mick made an impressive third ascent of Stevie Haston's steep Requiem for a Vampire (E8 6b), shortly after Nick Bullock made the second ascent. The pair also climbed Bam Bam (E7 6b), making the fourth and fifth ascents, before Nick got to work on establishing a new E8 6b, which he's named Pushing for Rail.

Lunacy, wisdom and artistry in one bumper article. Love it.

This is pretty inspiring stuff from Mick (and Nick), makes me yearn for retirement!
