Silk cut repeated

Pete Robins has done the 2nd ascent of Neil Dyer's Silk cut in the Parisellas cave, North Wales. Silk cut, which weighs in around 8B/+ or 8c+/9a, is a link-up of three problems: Lou Ferrino, 7C+, Halfway house, 8A, and Upper cut, 7B+.
According to UK Climbing "Pete went to desperate measures to ensure success; he only had two chocolate Easter treats with his dinner and didn't even finish his final pint the previous evening."
With that kind of commitment, success was certainly no surprise.
