Robbie Phillips has added a new E10 7a to Duntelchaig crag, Invernesshire, which he has named 'What we do in the Shadows'. The line leads up Nosferatu - an E8 6c established by Robbie in 2020 (UKC News) - before heading directly to the top of the crag, rather than following Nosferatu's rightwards-trending crack. Dave MacLeod repeated the line shortly after Robbie's ascent, just as he did on Nosferatu last year.

Quite a wholesome story and beautiful how the two could share the experience!

Great to see Robbie adding to the tally of top end Scottish trad routes! So AFAIK, apart from all of Dave MacLeod's lines at E9+ we've got Hold Fast, Hold True (E10 7a) and Magrathea (E9 7a) from Jules, Moonrise Kingdom (E9 6b) from Caff and now Robbie's new line.

I wouldn't bet against Icon of Lust (E8 6c) getting an upgrade if it ever gets repeated.

In reply to Andy Moles:

I've not looked at the numbers but this year must be a contender for the most E10 first ascents in a year. Nice to see some inspiring stuff go down, trad is well and truly alive!

I think it's something like 200 eggs a month at the last count.
