New grit E10

Adrian Berry, editor of, has climbed one of the last obvious lines on Frogatt, Derbyshire. The wall above the boulder problem 'Slingshot' had seen a lot of previous attention from Seb Grieve, but to get to it, you have to climb a Font 8a boulder problem. Enter Mr Berry, who put up the tenuous E8 'Soul Doubt' on Froggat in 2000 and is also no slouch in the bouldering department. After climbing Slingshot to a ledge, he had a harness thrown up to him for the F7c+ climbing on the headwall, with gear consisting of Wild Country 'Zero' Friends. The as yet un-named route has been given E10.
