James Pearson has made the third ascent of Neil Bentley's Burbage South test-piece Equilbrium. This route follows the blunt arete just right of the Boggart, and left of the prow taken by Parthian Shot and was put up by Neil in 2000 and graded E10. Since then Neil Gresham has repeated it in December 2002.
