NEWSFLASH: Divided Years (E8/9) Ground Up - McHaffie & Pasquill

DMM have just tweeted that both James McHaffie and Ryan Pasquill have yesterday managed ground-up repeats of the famous John Dunne route Divided Years (E8/9) at the Buzzard's Roost in Northern Ireland.

Both climbers had tried the line the day previously, coming close, and returned the following day to finish off the line watched by local hard climber Ricky Bell.

Here's an Instagram Video of Ryan on the first day:

Speaking to McHaffie briefly on the morning before he succeeded, he told UKC:

"My arms are a bit tired from a gammy move Ricky told me to do at the top. Amazing route. Dead safe and stunning climbing."

Here's the DMM Tweet:

And it sounds like Ricky Bell is attempting a new line to the left of Divided Years. Here's Caff's Tweet:

With tweets and Instagram videos coming thick and fast from this trip now is the time to follow the DMM Twitter and Instagram feeds!
