In a spell of what he calls his best on-sighting ever, Dave flashed Vlad (E7) and Fetish for Fear (E7) and on-sighted Dusk till Dawn (E7). On Fear of Failure, he discovered a knee-bar rest which allowed him to climb up and down, before committing to the bold crux. He'd seen Vlad climbed before, but flashed it putting all the gear in (Steve Crowe had previously flashed it with the gear in).
This year, Dave has added yet another E8 to Scafell - a direct line left of Berzin's Def Arete. His ascent of Fear of Failure may be one of the only true E8 on-sights ever.
