Stewart Watson, 4th ascent of Ben Moon's Voyager, Font 8b

Fresh from winning the Bouldering League at Manchester Climbing Centre (see the results here) twenty-two year old Stewart Watson, from Manchester, got the 4th ascent of Ben Moon's Voyager Font 8b at Burbage North on Saturday according to reports at ukbouldering.com. The other ascensionists are Paul Bennet and Tyler Landman.

Stewart has been climbing since he was 4 years old and over the years has logged an impressive array of hard ascents including his first sport 8a when he was 15 years old and has climbed sport 8c, and many hard boulder problems of Font 8a and above, including two previous Font 8b's at Magic Wood, Switzerland.
