Success for Parnell & Emmett

Matt Heason writes, "Tim Emmett and Ian Parnell have climbed a new all free route up the huge South East pillar of Kedar Dome (6830m) in India's Gangotri region. The boys climbed the route onsight, no falls and with no aid in 7 days. Tim led the crux pitch a smooth corner at over 6000m which he rated at E3/4 6a. "It's definately the most demanding piece of climbing that I've managed without falls, like climbing Zukator with a rucksac and a plastic bag over my head."
