Two 7Cs in Two Weeks for 11 Year-Old Leo Skinner

11 year-old Welsh climber Leo Skinner has climbed both Taylor Made 7C and Fat Cat Roof - also 7C - at Dinas Rock in the space of just two weeks.

Morgan Preece contacted UKC with the news:

"I coach a young lad called Leo Skinner who has just climbed his first V9, Taylor Made at Dinas Rock in South Wales."

Not long after on July 4th, Morgan contacted us again: "Today he climbed his second with an ascent of 'Fat Cat Roof,' also at Dinas Rock."

Leo has made rapid progress recently, having bouldered his first 7A, 7A+ and 7C in recent months. Watch this space...
