E8 at Frogatt - now E9 report that Ben Heason (perhaps the 21st century's most prolific grit climber) has completed his project at Frogatt.

The climb takes a direct line between Turd Burgler and Dogs Die in Hot Cars and has been named 'Ozbound', presumably becuase Ben is off on an extended tour down under very shortly. A grade of E8 7a has been suggested [Ben now feels that the route warrants E9. Ed]

Ben has been writing the new Frogatt guidebook and has nearly ticked the crag, making numerous repeats (many of which have been on-sight) of E6's and E7's over the past few months. Not bad for a chap with stumpy thumbs!
