Andy Earl has climbed a stunningly beautiful and hard new boulder problem at Shaftoe Crags in Northumberland (crag details here).
"Well after a week of really funny weather I have been lucky to be trying the fastest drying bloc in Northumberland, I did the stand up two weeks ago and thinking it might go from a sitter"
Indeed it did, on Sunday 24th June. He has christened the problem, Blood Sport and proposed a grade of Font 8b. It is located on Turtle Rock.
