Greg Boswell: M11 Flashes at White Goods Drytooling Meet

On 8th and 9th November the annual White Goods Drytooling Meet was held in North Wales and Scottish climber Greg Boswell was on top form, flashing two M11s and onsighting or flashing a collection of top-end testpieces. 

Greg commented in his blog: "I had a really good day's climbing and chilling out on the Saturday, and managed to climb a load of quality routes, including the 2nd ascent (flash) of Neomania M10+ and the first flash ascent of Careful Torque M11. All the routes I did were good fun and it was a shame the night rolled in before I could tick a few more."

The next day, Greg managed to flash Stump Man M11 and climbed The Finnish Start M10+ on his second attempt. 

He added: "All in all it was an awesome weekend and a big thanks to all the sponsors and the people that made it happen, and more importantly, a big thanks to Ramon Marin, who went out his way to give me loads of beta for the routes and helped me have such a successful weekend."

Greg is now looking forward to the Scottish winter season - watch this space!
