‘You need about a week without rain for it to be completely dry and that very rarely happens in Wales unless it's lockdown.’

Didn’t know the weather abided by Boris Johnson’s lockdown rules.

Whatever happened to Neil Carson?

He was doing super hard stuff years ago, then disappeared.

In reply to Ian Dunn:

Don't think so. He fell off the onsight (wet holds) and it seems he never went back. 

In reply to simes303:

There's an interesting and recent interview with him on ukb. 

In reply to Luke Brooks:

I knew he had tried it and assumed he had put it to bed. I recalled some photos of Keith Sharples of him on it in a magazine awhile back.

It seems that Hazel Findlay climbed it too! At least that's what I understand from her Instagram.

Yep sounds like it!

Bit odd that there's an article about Angus climbing this route and no mention of Hazel's ascent no?

We're waiting on some information from Hazel (she did it after Angus).
