Aidan Roberts has made the first ascent of Right Hand Man (f8C), at The Bowderstone in Cumbria.

At 8C, Right Hand Man is one of the hardest lines on the boulder, alongside Silent Singer (f8C), another of Aidan's first ascents. Silent Singer, which Aidan first climbed in February 2022, has since been repeated by Will Bosi, who confirmed the 8C grade.

Despite making the first ascent back in August, Aidan has only recently publicised it on his Instagram, where he had the following to say:

Aidan is recently back from a trip to Finland, where he put in a number of sessions on one of the world's hardest boulders, Burden of Dreams (f9A). You can watch his progress on the boulder, alongside footage of the rest of his and Jim Pope's Finnish trip, via the link below:
