Birkett's Up At Cam Crag, Wasdale again!

© Steve Crowe
After the iconic Nowt But A Fleein Thing, Dave Birkett's E8 on Cam Crag, the man is working on a new line on the same crag high on the scree slopes above Wasdale In the Lake District.

He hasn't done it yet....something about certain death.

But less whittering by me, but I did think using a rucksack as a dummy is quite novel!

You can watch Dave preparing for his ascent at Al Lee's
