David Fitzgerald - Voyager Sit 8B+

© Sam Walker

This week's Friday Night Video follows Irish climber David Fitzgerald on Voyager Low Start 8B+ at Burbage North. After sending Deliverance 7B+ and The Ace 8B, David set his sights on Voyager sit start 8B+ to round off his trip to the Peak. Remarkably, David has only been climbing for five years.

Voyager sit start was first climbed by Ben Moon in 2006 and had only been climbed by Niccolò Ceria and Ned Feehally before David's ascent in March (UKC News Report).

Awesome. It's such an imposing boulder in the flesh.

That was a brilliant film. I watched it together with my young lad who is just getting serious about bouldering and he was enthralled. Uplifting and a delight to watch.

Good wee film, but how is that a sit start?

Did you watch to the end? It's good to see a nice film about the efforts put in to a single hard problem. Must have taken a lot of time and effort to put together.
