New 8c at Dumbuck

Dave MacLeod has succeeded on a long-standing project in Dumbuck to give Scotland its first 8c sport route. Devastation Generation was completed on 27 October by Dave over three years of work, which have been focused over the winter seasons of 2003-2004. The line was first equipped and attempted by Dave Redpath back in 1996, but attempts over a six-year period gave no success. Dave MacLeod also put up Happiness in Slavery at Dumbuck in May this year which was Scotland's first confirmed 8b+.
