This is an excerpt from the full report on Ground Up Climbing.

Stevie Haston made a return visit to his old stomping grounds in North Wales, ostensibly to visit his family and friends, but also with a view to continuing the development of one of his favourite crags, the alarmingly serious Craig Dorys down on the Lleyn Peninsular.

First up was Bam, Bam E8 6b, a truly mind blowing route up the steep ground in between Bobok and The Gross Clinic on the Stigmata Buttress.

"We cleaned it on an abseil rope first; we must have removed a mini skip's worth of loose rock" explained Leigh McGinley.
