Adam Lincoln makes "probably the second pure ascent" of Cool Moon (E7 6c)

On Sunday Adam Lincoln made what's probably the second ascent of Cool Moon at Curbar without the side runners. The grade with side runners is E6 6c; without, E7 6c. (That was first done by Thomas de Gay, who soloed it in 1998.) After his headpoint [so, not quite E7 - UKC Ed.] Adam said: "The line isn't the most striking but the moves are brilliant."

Then, having watched Adam on it, Ryan Pasquil went on to flash it.
