Ollie Torr has made a late season repeat of Fat Lip (f8B) V13/8B at  Raven Tor (Miller's Dale). Earlier this year, James Noble made the first repeat in 8 years since Steve Mcclure's first ascent in 2007. Ollie's ascent is believed to be the sixth overall. This year the problem has become a popular objective - attracting five repeats in under 7 months.

Ollie told UKC:

"Really happy to get Fat Lip done as I probably started trying it a little bit late for good conditions. I’ve been falling off the same moves since first getting on it and have had to improvise beta around wet holds each session."

He added:

"It’s been great to project though as I have kind of neglected my own climbing over the last 2 years being more dedicated to becoming a better coach and setting up mine and Tom Randall’s coaching business ‘Lattice Training’. Hopefully with more time on my hands, now that I am just coaching, I can try to keep up."

Wow, that's awesome, good effort. But what I am also really interested in is where did he get is Five Ten whites? Has he got a secret stockpile, saving his last pairs for special occasions or are five ten still making them for a favoured few? We need to know :)

Thanks for that, can't wait. That means I can get my last stockpiled pair out of the cupboard and start using them next year.
