Local News - Best Limestone Problem in the UK?

Chris Doyle has climbed a stunning new line down on the Sea View Walls below the Marine Drive on Great Orme. Flashpoint V8/7b+ takes the impressive bulging wall located just beyond the descent point and is a contender for the best of its grade on British limestone.

Fresh from the first ascent Chris scampered back down, grinning from ear to ear, and immediately declaring;

“That's the most fun I've had with a pair of rock shoes on for a long, long time! That is easily the best problem on the Ormes, it really is amazing. I'd have to say that it's of a similar quality to stuff like Surprise de Chef at Ailfroide, or maybe even Midnight Lightning!”
