VIDEO: Throwback, ~8C, first ascent by Timy Fairfield

Timy Fairfield, 45, has made the first ascent of Throwback, for which he suggests V15/8C.

This brilliant test-piece is steep, elegantly choreographed, gymnastically specific, savagely powerful, explosive, absolutely hard and 100% natural - the way I like it!

Timy competed internationally in the 90s and for five years he lived in France and trained with the French national team. Since then he has worked as a route setter and climbing coach, and is the president of Futurist Climber.

Timy Fairfield is sponsored by: Deuter, Hylete, Mad Rock, Polar, Rock Andy and adidas
