Polish climber and UK resident Dawid Skoczylas hasrepeated Mike Adams' 8C Serenataon at Impossible Roof, South Yorkshire. Dawid put substantial time andeffort into the problem and joins a fairly small list of 'honorary' Brits to climb 8C.
Serenata climbs the low start into Serenity and ends in Ned Feehally's Serenade extension, therefore creating a link of an~8B+ into ~7C+, to produce one of the UK's hardest problems, first climbed in 2015.
Fitting in attempts between a full-time job and looking after his four children, Dawid's ascent is highly impressive. He told UKC:
"I am very pleased and surprised I did it.Relieved that a couple of years of effort (including time spent on Serenity and Serendipity) materialised in the ascent. Also relieved that I didn't get injured in the process! Brilliant line which you can dropon almost every move."
"I feelparticularly lucky that despite having a busy family life and full time job I can steel realise the teenage dream of climbing quite regularly, exploring new venues and on the odd occasion pushing my personal limits."
